Almost exactly nine years ago I wrote a post about a straggler dinosaur lurking in the wilds of a long-closed mini-golf course and amusement park on North 76th Street in Milwaukee. (My original blog post HERE.)
After years haunting the abandoned, weedy site, the dinosaur was purchased and moved up to Saukville. Here is a Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel article talking about that event, four years ago: https://www.jsonline.com/story/news/columnists/jim-stingl/2017/01/21/stingl-johnsons-park-dino-defies-extinction/96849170/
Today I stumbled upon two nice update articles in OnMilwaukee and the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that detail where the enormous reptile’s restoration currently stands. Or make that where it currently “lies,” because, as both articles’ photos and the OnMilwaukee video show, this forlorn guy is “resting in pieces” (couldn’t resist the obvious pun) in a field awaiting his eventual resurrection.
