Tourists at a Utah state park are mistaking dinosaur tracks for ordinary rocks and throwing them into a nearby lake, causing “substantial impact” to the historic site.
“The dinosaur track site is deteriorating due to human impact,” the Red Fleet State Park said in a statement posted to Facebook. “There has been a substantial impact to the track site from individuals throwing rocks (most containing dinosaur tracks) into the water over the past 6 months.”
The article goes on to state the following:
Hundreds of prehistoric raptor tracks are imprinted in sandstone there and visitors having been throwing the slabs of stone into the reservoir.
