SCIENCE CENTER DINOSAUR DAMAGED BY VANDALS
ST. LOUIS-The Apatosaurus that was recently installed outside the Saint Louis Science Center to promote its new exhibition, Dinosaurs Unearthed, is receiving "emergency surgery" today, after vandals broke its tail. An expert from the exhibition company that created the display has cut into the dinosaur's tail, to replace the broken part of it's frame and will subsequently close and patch the skin.
He will be working for the remainder of the afternoon, providing for photo opportunities. Contact Beth McClure with questions or to schedule a time to shoot/interviews.
Science Center representatives, who had already warned trespassers away with signs, plan to install a fence over the next few days to prevent further trespassing and damage. They said they are unsure exactly when the damage occurred.
