Vandals steal dinosaur neighborhood attraction

IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (KIFI) - A missing dinosaur statue from a popular neighborhood attraction has been found.

A couple of hunters located it in a ditch on Taylor Mountain Wednesday.

That's approximately 13 miles from the owner's home. 

Despite minor damage, the statue is in good shape. 

Owners Tim and Darla Murphy noticed something peculiar last week after one of their metal dinosaurs disappeared. 

The set of dinosaur decorations was custom made in Darby, Mont.

Unfortunately, the artist is no longer making these types of metal creations, so the owners were glad the statue was found.
