Orange dinosaur at mini golf course saved from extinction

Associated Press Associated Press 15/09/2016

SAUGUS, Mass. — The giant orange dinosaur seen by thousands of motorists a day on a Massachusetts highway has been saved from extinction.

Some feared the 20-foot dinosaur in Saugus would disappear because the miniature golf course on which it has stood since 1958 was sold to a developer who plans on building apartments, a hotel and retail space at the site.

But project partner Michael Barsamian tells The Daily Item of Lynn (http://bit.ly/2cXMeOq ) that he bought the roadside kitsch and plans on installing it next to the new hotel. He says the dinosaur is like Boston's Citgo sign.

A woman whose family owned the mini golf course says she had several inquiries about purchasing the dinosaur and is glad it's staying close.
