Either Colorado Springs is dealing with a Jurassic Park situation, or someone (some people, more likely) was able to steal a brontosaurus named Deeno from a local shopping center — and keep him hidden for nearly two weeks, as of this writing.

Deeno was last seen July 13 at The Market at Spring Creek, a retail center at South Circle Drive and Monterey Road.

The center's new owner, Western Centers — which recently commissioned Deeno and four other colorful sculptures — is advertising a $500 reward for the return of the green and purple dino.

He has very large footprints and eats a vegan diet, the missing poster notes.

Aurora-based property management group Western Centers is also working on revitalizing the center through the installation of "large art murals, new LED lighting, new paint, roof and HVAC repairs, new landscaping, food trucks and more," representative Paul Suter notes in an email.

Deeno's four companion sculptures include a multicolored giraffe, pink flamingo, blue T-rex and red rooster. They anxiously await his safe return.
