Valley City, N.D. - In less than two weeks, Valley City's famed "Bob" the Triceratops is leaving to be auctioned off.

Barnes County Historical Society curator Wes Anderson says the owners of the fossil will remove it by the 20th to be sold in January in Arizona.

He says they'll be sad to see it go.

Discovered in western North Dakota in 2003, it's one of the most complete Triceratops ever found.

Anderson says the museum tried secure the $1.4 million needed to keep it here, but couldn't.

He says they hope to extend museum hours to give people more time to see "Bob" before it goes and that people should keep an eye on their  Facebook page  for updates.
