Lifelike dinosaur statue causes stir in San Juan Capistrano
SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO, Calif. (KABC) -- A lifelike dinosaur statue created quite a stir in San Juan Capistrano.
The 40-foot long replica apatosaurus was placed in the Zoomars Petting Zoo in June without city review and permits.
Kids love dinosaurs, so officials thought it was a perfect addition. But some local residents said it just didn't fit into their historic neighborhood.
However, the issue seems to be resolved now. The Cultural Heritage Commission held a meeting Tuesday and decided to let the zoo keep the dinosaur, saying it was no longer offensive.
