DINOSAUR 13 | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


DINOSAUR 13

When Paleontologist Peter Larson and his team from the Black Hills Institute made the world's greatest dinosaur discovery in 1990, they knew it was the find of a lifetime; the largest, most complete T. rex ever found. But during a ten-year battle with the U.S. government, powerful museums, Native American tribes, and competing paleontologists they found themselves not only fighting to keep their dinosaur but fighting for their freedom as well.

Based on the book "Rex Appeal: The Amazing Story of Sue, the Dinosaur That Changed Science, the Law, and My Life" by PETER LARSON and KRISTIN DONNAN

Webmaster's Commentary: 


Claire and I watched this documentary last night. It is a stunning example of our current government seeing its role in society as bullying people whenever it can. The government went after Peter Larson and Kristin Donnan with a vengeance, railroading them first out of business then into prison while the man who actually committed the crime of selling the fossil T-Rex without US Department of the interior permission walked away with $7.6 million tax free from the sale of "Sue", the most complete T-rex ever found.
