Pet store owner wants dinosaur returned

BARTLESVILLE, Okla. (AP) – The owner of a northeastern Oklahoma pet store is asking for the return of a nearly 9-foot-tall dinosaur statue.

KOTV-TV reports the Tyrannosaurus statue has been outside Classic Pets in Bartlesville for almost a decade and is usually tied down with cables. Owner Kathy Keim says she discovered it was missing Sunday.

She says the dinosaur is popular in the community, especially among children. It’s often dressed in outfits coordinated with specific events during the year. It wears a wedding gown in the spring; swimsuits and shorts in the summer; and a cap and gown to commemorate high school graduations.

Keim says the statue isn’t heavy, but is big enough that someone must have planned the theft in advance. Anyone with information is asked to call Bartlesville police.
