Automobile race threatens fossil cetaceans



The Dakar Rally, an 8400 kilometer race through Pru and Chinle, and involving 460 vehicles, threatens to damage Miocene cetacean fossils. The 2012 race caused considerable damage as the course ran directly over the fossil beds. Complaints to the race organizers have generate little interest. Pru's culture minster has said that the race will no compromise the country heritage.
