How did they kill the dinosaurs in Jurassic Park again?

I only ask because it might be important to know in the future. Seems that some paleontologists (that would be smart people who play in the dirt) found a friggen huge Tyrannosaurus rex thigh bone in Montana a couple months ago. Unfortunately, when they tried to stuff the bone in their chopper, it wouldn't fit. So, after spending what was likely weeks dusting off this bone to preserve it, they very scientifically broke it in two.

Luckily, this paid off as they found soft tissue in the middle of this bone. What kind?

This tissue, including blood vessels, bone cells, and perhaps even blood cells, was so well preserved that it was still stretchy and flexible.

If someone teaches Wayne Knight to use bash, we're in big trouble.
