I read a similar story while in the UK and the version I got was that it was
Iguanodon that had now been reclassified as (partially) quadrupedal and that
one of the best known examples had just been re-mounted to reflect this
(think the article was in the London Times). Unfortunately I did not keep
the cutting and do not remember which museum/paleontologist was involved but
I am sure that it did not concern a tyrannosaur as then I would have kept
the cutting. Maybe this was the source of the rumour?
