“God created dinosaurs. God destroyed dinosaurs. God created Man. Man destroyed God.” Man puts dinosaur in road.

It was a great surprise to some drivers when they found a 7.6-meter-long (25 foot-long) model Triceratops standing in the middle of the road near Godshill, the village on the Isle of Wight in the U.K in the early hours of Saturday morning. This act was believed to result in the drunken mischief.

The prank was made to public when Chris Hollingshead released an image of the dinosaur on Facebook with an exclamation that one would hardly have such priceless moment to find the road was blocked by a 20ft Triceratops when driving home from work at the very early morning.

The model dinosaur was the product from Island Gems, a fossil shop and got its pet name as Godshilla.

In the interview with BBC, Martin Simpson, the owner of Island Gems, said that It would about five adult to move the dinosaur a couple of inches, therefore in this case, a concerted effort was necessary as well as alcohol was possibly involved.

According to Mr. Simpson, for the time being Godshilla would   be tied down so as to avoid any future escapes of such huge dinosaur.
