Utah tourists throw dinosaur tracks in lake

Still Waters

Visitors to a US state park in Utah have been destroying 200 million-year-old dinosaur tracks by throwing them into the water, park officials say.

While this has been an ongoing problem for many years, officials say the damaging behaviour has increased dramatically in the last six months.

The dinosaur tracks are one of the biggest draws to Red Fleet State Park and many have been irrevocably damaged.

Visitors have been throwing the tracks around as if they were merely rocks.

Surely they can get divers in to rescue these valuable objects?

Some perhaps.

Mr Hansen told the BBC the park will be able to recover some of the tracks, but it all depends on how they hit the water and if they have shattered in the process.

Sounds like terrible planning by the park people. These things were just laying around within reach of randos?

Under what circumstances does that sound like a good idea? Absolute whems! (I'm not sure how you spell 'whem')
