Ancient Dinosaur Footprint Damaged by Vandals

A dinosaur footprint in Australia that managed to survive for a whopping  115 million years finally met its match in the form of a miscreant with  a hammer.

Officials at the Bunurong Marine Park say that some nefarious individual  seemingly smashed the toes of the print at some point in the last  month.

The damage was discovered this past week when rangers were leading a  tour of the site and came upon the now-disfigured print as well as  pieces of it strewn about nearby.

Embodying the popular lament 'this is why we can't have nice things,'  the print was actually first found in 2006 and officials opted to leave  it in place and unprotected.

Their reasoning was that this would allow park visitors to see the print  as it was naturally created rather than behind glass in a museum.

More on this unfortunate story, including why park officials believe the print was specifically targeted, at the Coast to Coast AM website.
