White Stag

It's been painted brown again -- to look like one of the hundreds of deer that we almost hit driving through the back roads of Wisconsin and Minnesota.

[Kim Newell, 08/12/2012]

Wrenshall's big brown deer was painted white in 2010 by a group of locals who christened it "The White Stag." The group wanted their town to have a unique civic symbol. But the rest of the town evidently didn't agree, and the deer was repainted brown in 2011.

World's Largest White Stag

Wrenshall's city council recently gave a group of big statue enthusiasts permission to repaint the town's fading brown fiberglass deer statue. It's now white, which makes it the world's largest white stag. Or the world's largest albino deer. Or the world's largest patronus. (Take your pick. In any case, it's pretty cool.)

The statue was produced at the F.A.S.T. Corporation in Sparta, Wisconsin. At least five identical deer statues stand in other towns across the Midwest, including St. Ignace, Michigan; Bemidji, Minnesota; Deerwood, Minnesota; Defiance, Ohio and Black River Falls, Wisconsin.

But Wrenshall's is now the only one without pigmentation.
