Dino the dinosaur is once again guarding hole six at Fun Acre mini golf.

The iconic dinosaur was stolen in the middle of the night.  The owner noticed it missing this morning, along with a giant hole cut in the fence.

But a break as big as the dinosaur came Wednesday evening when a man in a pickup pulling a trailer carrying Dino was pulled over by police near Chestnut and the West Bypass.  He told officers he bought the giant green lizard earlier in the day from a company, not knowing it was stolen.

By Wednesday night the fiberglass lizard was back at Fun Acre, where it has served as an obstacle since 1987.

Police are still looking for the thief.  If you have information, call either 417-889-1872 or 417-343-8285.
