M.O.R. Planning For T-Rex Transfer

BOZEMAN -

A famous Montana fossil is waiting to head to the Smithsonian in Washington.

The Museum of The Rockies' Wankel T-rex fossil was scheduled to head for the Smithsonian last week, but was put on hold because of the government shutdown.

M.O.R. officials said they are hoping the fossil will be able to go to Washington in the spring.

They are holding off on the move because they don't want to take a chance of shipping the fossil in the winter.

"It took us six months to find a date before all the parties could agree the last time, so it is going to take a while before it gets worked out last time," said Shelley McKamey, Museum of the Rockies Executive Director.

McKamey said even though they are delaying the move, the fossil is already crated and ready to be loaded on to a truck for transfer.

It will be on a 50 year loan to the Smithsonian.
