Re: Drunken student damages cast and original fossils at university museum



Some ten years ago we had a similar case in Munich. A group of drunken students 
(geography) came at night into the paleontological exhibition hall and one of 
them decided to have a ride on a 13000 year old fossil deer (Megaloceros). The 
skeleton (original) broke down and since its repair there are some extra wires 
to keep its head up. The irresponsible student had to pay, of course.
