Pipeline Worker Finds Huge Dinosaur Fossil in Canada


The last thing you expect to come across during your workday is a dinosaur. And yet that's exactly what happened Tuesday to a construction worker in the Canadian city of Spirit River in the province of Alberta. Working on the installation of a pipeline for the Tourmaline Oil Corp., the worker stumbled across a mostly intact fossil measuring roughly 100 feet long, as the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation reported. (CNN put the measurement of the dinosaur at 35 feet.) The worker was operating a backhoe at the time of the discovery.
