Two Orange Moose

I wrote in almost two years ago about how Black River Falls, had a big orange moose. Well, now we have two... and a restaurant called "The Orange Moose," where they give you a newspaper article explaining the origins of the moose. Besides the moose, we also have a big fiberglass deer jumping over a log, and a mouse holding a big brick of cheese. We were supposed to get the World's Largest Beer Stein, but the artist Sue Sampson owes money in La Crosse and they took down the "Coming soon..." sign. She does have a beer stein factory in town now.

Lastly, we had a movie made about our town called Wisconsin Death Trip, they showed it on HBO recently, it was about how 100 years ago people died in mysterious ways and how our town and other Wisconsin towns were full of loonies... not that much has changed.

Giant Orange Moose and Deer

In Black River Falls, there is a giant moose and a giant deer both made from concrete. The moose is bright orange and both can be seen from I-94. They are next to Perkins and Taco Bell, and are a popular place for drunk college students to sit on. Also Black River Falls is the future home of the World's Largest Beer Stein, hopefully coming soon so the college students will get off of the moose.
