EAST LANSDOWNE, Pa. — Police in a Philadelphia suburb received an unusual report about a dinosaur on the loose.

But officers in East Lansdowne did not panic and took things in stride when they realized what was happening.

They posted a video showing a person in a Tyrannosaurus rex costume “taking their kid to school” on Tuesday.

Officers concluded their report: “No problem. Clear.”
