Dinosaur skeletons, egg returned to Mongolia

 

NEW YORK undefined Several dinosaur skeletons and a fossilized egg looted from the Gobi Desert and illegally smuggled into the United States were returned to the government of Mongolia Thursday by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI). HSI special agents seized the items during two separate investigations and determined they were illegally poached and smuggled out of Mongolia between 2005 and 2012.
