Listed in chronological order. Newest comments at the end.
Looks like somebody has lassoed it from the ground.

Don't you mean Apatosaurus

I Googled Apatosaurus
and found this:
Apatosaurus was a huge harmless dinosaur, a sauropod.
Now, the question is: How do they KNOW that it was harmless?

Now, the next question...
Apatosaurus means "deceptive lizard"
The old name was Brontosaurus which means "thunder lizard"
This was (reportedly) a large, fodder eating machine. Every grazing critter I know expels vast volumes of gas. I'm thinking this dude wasn't capable of sneaking one out so "deceptive lizard" doesn't seem to fit where "thunder lizard" really would seem to hit the nail on the head.

Every large, fodder eating machine can cause harm; just by being large.

It only looked
harmless, that's why it was "deceptive."

I was intrigued by the link named pour15minutesdamour!
Google translated the page and the caption for the dinosaur was: "Move a dinosaur requires power and tact. Movers yet versed in the most difficult jobs there are broken kidneys. Great week."
I think that says it all

Looks to me like they got a large whiff of the south end of a north bound deceptive lizard.

BMN, ITA. You could be in serious trouble if it accidentally stepped on you. Or pooped on you. Or did the thunder lizard thing in your general direction...
Anyone know where this is? Looks like the US.

I'm thinking this is somewhere in the SouthWest 'cause only Pecos Bill could rope a dinosaur while it was flying through the air.

Oh, plotz. My last comment with the location=url was unintentional. It's been lotsa little errs all week for me. I blame the weather.

CannyScot. I have been stepped on by a draught horse and shovelled the other.

Deceptive because who knew it could fly?!
