Wow incredible find not just for the rare Utahraptor been found but for it demise in the mire been recorded. Utahraptor must have been some creature with them claws and feathers . Beautiful landscapes too. How did they get that down from the cliff?

 

Thank @Troodon for posting very interesting.

 

cheers bobby

Don't no for sure but the typical mode of transportation in these case is helicopter

Very interesting find and I recall reading about this a few years ago. Good to see there has been progress made.

 

Wasn't there another, similar find made in China or somewhere where a bunch of smaller dinos got sucked into a pit that may have been from a giant sauropod footprint?

This has been in the news and progress has been made but funds still needed to move it forward.  Yes on China but cannot recall the details.   Typically of what happened at the La Brea tar pits in LA .
