ACT Policing is seeking witnesses after three dinosaur’s sustained damage at the National Dinosaur Museum on Saturday night (5 August).

Around 11:00am Sunday (6 August) police attended the location and saw three damaged raptor dinosaurs. The damage sustained to the dinosaurs indicate that an angle grinder or hacksaw was used to remove the heads from the body.

A review of the CCTV shows that the damage occurred between 10:55pm and 11:20pm on Saturday night. At the time of the damage the three raptors were in an outside display area and the offenders had climbed a 4ft fence to gain entry.

The CCTV also showed a 4×4 dual cab utility drive along the western side of the building. Police believe that the occupants of this utility committed the property damage.

Police are urging anyone who has any information or saw suspicious activity around the National Dinosaur Museum on Saturday night to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers ACT website. Please quote reference 6137157. Information can be provided anonymously.
