Smuggled T-Rex returned to Mongolia

A T-Rex skeleton that had been looted from Mongolia’s Gobi Desert and illegally smuggled into the U.S. by a fossils dealer will be flown back to its native land, according to The Associated Press.



The dinosaur was seized by federal immigration and Customs Enforcement agents after it was sold at auction in New York for more than $1 million last year.
