Millions of years after is brethren went extinct, a modern day dinosaur made from scrap wood may go extinct ... for lack of a building permit:
Does a 25-foot-tall, 122-foot-long dinosaur need a permit to avoid extinction?
That's the unlikely dilemma posed by "Vermontasaurus," a whimsical sculpture thrown together with scrap wood by a Vermont man. The oddity now faces opposition from neighbors and regulatory challenges from government entities that he fears could force him to dismantle it.
It's art, not edifice, says Brian Boland.
"They should leave me alone. It's a piece of artwork," he said.
