Buffalo Statue, Canada's Biggest
Once the home of the world's last great herd of buffalo, the town of Wainwright has Canada's Largest Buffalo Statue. There is also a museum with displays on the old Buffalo National Park and a few buffalo are still penned outside of town.
The park? Well, in the twenties most of the buffalo were either slaughtered for food or shipped north. The remaining ones were all killed when they made the park into a prison camp and military base in 1940 (Parks operated differently in those days).
The statue is 10 feet high.[Gregory Melle Notsorry.com, 07/31/2008]
