Dinosaur Provincial Park
After 75 million years the skeletal remains of a Daspletosaurus were on the move. On December 13, 2011, the Dinosaur Research Institute arranged for a helicopter to lift a plaster jacket, weighing 350 kg (800 lbs.) out of the badlands of Dinosaur Provincial Park. The plaster jacket protected the pelvis of Daspletosaurus, a close relative of Tyrannosaurus rex, and is part of a skeleton that was collected by University of Alberta during fieldwork in 2010 and 2011. The Daspletosaurus was found in the Oldman Formation, and is considered to be quite rare. The pelvis has been taken to Edmonton where it will be prepared along with the rest of the skeleton. Alpine Helicopters of Calgary was contracted to perform the work because of the site’s remote location and the technical difficulties involved in extracting the pelvis using ground-based methods.
