Hill City residents attend "Sue" documentary

     HILL CITY, S.D. (AP) - A T-rex named Sue has returned to the Black Hills on the big screen.
     Hill City residents lined up at the town's high school Saturday for a screening of "Dinosaur 13, which tells the story of the Tyrannosaurus unearthed from South Dakota more than 20 years ago.
     Sue was caught in a complex legal battle over ownership and eventually wound up at Chicago's Field Museum. The dinosaur was more than 90 percent complete when they were discovered, missing only a foot, one arm and a few ribs and vertebrae.
     Peter Larson says his team discovered the T-Rex on a private ranch but there was a technicality from the owner placing a particular section of land in trust with the United States government.
