For Juan the apatosaurus, an eviction event in Capistrano

For Juan the apatosaurus, an eviction event in Capistrano: The statue of the leathery lizard was long a sore spot with San Juan Capistrano locals, who are having him removed from historic Los Rios Street and shipped to a tourist attraction in Arizona.

Historical advocates in San Juan Capistrano argued that the jagged hills of southern Orange County were deep under water when dinosaurs first roamed the Earth. No land-roaming dinosaur — neither a T. rex , stegosaurus nor apatosaurus — would have come through unless lost at sea.
