Montana remains Montana remains
*** Dinosaur bones will stay in Montana - Gore
The bones of a 65 million-year-old Tyrannosaurus rex dinosaur will
stay in Montana, where they were unearthed this year on U.S.
government property, Vice President Al Gore said Wednesday.
Tyrannosaurus rex is believed to be the largest carnivore ever to
walk the earth. The specimen was found in July on Agriculture
Department property, which makes the dinosaur bones U.S. property.
Gore has asked Agriculture Secretary Dan Glickman to work with
Montana state officials and the Montana congressional delegation to
find a proper place to make the old bones accessible to the public.
