Big Red the Ox

Field review by the editors.

Bozeman, Montana

Died 1910

Pet Cemetery.

Big Red, who died in 1910, was the last Ox to pull freight over Bozeman Pass. In Bozeman, that's good enough to get you stuffed and displayed on the wall. He resides inside The Powder Horn, an old fashioned sporting goods store that also shows off elk, moose, eagles, more than a dozen black bears, and a rhino.

The store used to provide a step ladder to visitors who want to get an up-close picture with Big Red, but latest reports say that the ladder is gone and store employees have completely forgotten about the big ox.
