The theropod dinosaur footprint that had been illegally excavated from one of the Tumbler Ridge Museum Foundation's field sites has been recovered. TRMF would like to thank the RCMP for their assistance with the investigation. The footprint-bearing rock slab has been returned intact to Tumbler Ridge. A previous press release on the vandalism and theft from the tracksite by the TRMF was a catalyst for the voluntary return of the print. A replica of this well-known print will be placed at the field site. The original will form an important part of the museum’s collections.

RCMP Constable Chuck Lair returns the dinosaur footprint-bearing slab to Dr Charles Helm, Vice President of the Tumbler Ridge Museum Foundation.
