Rare dinosaur fossil found in Alberta oilsands
GRANDE PRAIRIE, Alta. – Paleontologists were thrilled when they found the fossilized remains of a duck-billed dinosaur in northwestern Alberta last month.
A few days ago, they found that vandals had smashed the Hadrosaur skeleton to pieces.
“We still know very little about the dinosaurs that existed up here so every skeleton is crucial,” Dr. Phil Bell (a paleontologist involved in a dig) said in a statement.
“Each bone is irreplaceable.”
