Fishface | 11824 comments DING DING DING!!! D is absolutely CORRECT! A combination museum and rockhound operation called the Black Hills Institute fell afoul of the Federal gummint and one of the owners, Pete Larson, went to federal prison for 2 years for unearthing Sue, a Tyrannosaurs rex, from tribal land without the proper permits. There were months of protests, several books and a movie made about it.

To clarify, Jake Bird was executed only once. He did however commit as many as 44 axe murders himself. Thus I refer not to the murder of Jake Bird but the murders that were his handiwork.
