HSI returns dinosaur bones to Mongolia

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) returned a Tyrannosaurus Bataar skeleton, looted from the Gobi Desert and illegally smuggled into the United States, to the government of Mongolia, on May 6, 2013, during a repatriation ceremony at a Manhattan hotel. The Bataar was seized in New York by ICE’s Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) special agents after it sold at a Manhattan auction for $1.05 million.

  • The nearly complete skeleton of a dinosaur was forfeited today to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations special agents. This action stems from an investigation by HSI and the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York.
The skeleton of a Tyrannosaurus Bataar dinosaur (the Tyrannosaurus Bataar Skeleton) was looted from the Gobi Desert in Mongolia. This forfeiture is the first step to the hopeful repatriation of the fossil to Mongolia.
