In the wee hours of Saturday, the English village of Godshill looked something like a scene out of Jurassic Park.
That’s because some pranksters blocked a road with a realistic-looking triceratops that brought some puzzled driverson the Isle of Wight to a halt.
Technically, they stole it: the model dinosaur, estimated to be between 20 and 25 feet long,belongs to Martin Simpson, who runs a garden shop called the Jurassic Garden that sells fossils and rare stones, the BBC reports.
He discovered the dinosaur had been moved when he saw pictures of it online.
“It takes about five blokes to move the dinosaur a couple of inches,” he said, “so it was definitely a concerted effort and drink was probably involved.”
