Dinosaur bone cabin saved from extinction

U.S. & World

Residents of Medicine Bow, Wyoming are raising funds to move a cabin made of fossilized dinosaur bones closer to town before vandals and souvenir hunters can pick it apart.

If you blink while driving along Wyoming’s Highway 30, you may miss the tiny town of Medicine Bow.

An old depot sits in the middle of town, turned into a history museum.

Now a new addition is about to be unearthed: a cabin made completely out of dinosaur bones.

“Getting that fossil cabin…that is going to be so wonderful. Historically because it will help preserve it,” says Sharon Biamon, the director of the Medicine Bow Museum.

The fossil cabin has been closed for 20 years, but the town doesn’t want it to go extinct.

The roadside attraction was once home to dinosaur bones, but now those are gone.

“Vandals have started just breaking in and stealing all of the bones. Just breaking windows to be breaking them,” Biamon says.

With help from the community and sponsors, they dug up over 42,000$ to move it, which will do more than preserve it.
