The fossil was vandalized in September, 2014, making it necessary to remove it for safekeeping. In a paper published Tuesday, April 11, 2017, BYU officials say they've identified the fossil as that of a new dinosaur, named Moabosaurus, since it was found near Moab, Utah.

Rep. Angela Romero, a Utah lawmaker, is working on new statewide rules requiring college counselors to keep sex abuse reports confidential. The move comes after Brigham Young University faced significant backlash when it was revealed that some reported assault information was shared with the school's honor code office.
