Eight hunters, big-game weapons strapped across their backs, climbed onto the dock. The unpiloted boat that brought them to the remote Pacific island pulled away behind them. At last, their provided radio came to life.
“Welcome to Dinosaur Hunts!” said the artificial-sounding voice. “This is an unsanctioned hunt so don’t expect to meet your hosts.”
“Hey are the rumors true?” said Will Blumberg into the radio.
“That Dr. Sappersmith tried to make dinosaurs as smart as people.”
“Lucky for you, he failed. Still, you’re here because his man-eating Utah Raptors are alive and well. Now please step lively, gentlemen. Dinner awaits!”
“Let’s go boys,” cheered Will, anticipating the killing. “This’ll be the most exciting hunt yet!”
Miles away in the radio shack, a Utah Raptor replaced the radio’s mic. He grinned at the other Raptor updating the computer database and crowed, “This’ll be the most exciting hunt yet!”

Velociraptors weren’t correctly portrayed in the movie, “Jurassic Park.” Velociraptors are much smaller than that, about the size of a large turkey. Utah Raptors were far bigger. Human beings would’ve been hors d’oeuvres for them.
