Orange dinosaur saved from extinction

Friday, September 16, 2016

SAUGUS, Mass. -- The giant orange dinosaur seen by thousands of motorists a day on U.S. 1 in Saugus, Massachusetts, has been saved from extinction. Some feared the 20-foot dinosaur would disappear because the miniature golf course on which it has stood since 1958 was sold to a developer, who plans on building apartments, a hotel and retail space at the site. But project partner Michael Barsamian said he bought the roadside kitsch and plans on installing it next to the new hotel.
