Ivan the (terribly treated) T. rex



There is evidently a T. rex informally called  "Ivan" to be unveiled at the 
"Museum of World Treasures" in Kansas--supposedly  about 60% complete.  Has 
anyone heard of this specimen?  

The  people involved don't seem to be paleontologists, but the specimen has 
been  prepared and mounted for public display.   This seems scientifically  
reckless in light of recent discoveries on fossil bone, soft tissue,  
surrounding 
matrix, etc.  Ivan may have had something important to say  before being 
stripped to the bone.
