The cow has received a makeover and is looking brand new. The hole has been patched and a fresh coat of paint has brought it back to life. Kudos to the new owners for the fine job they did in the restoration.

This huge cow stands near Los Portales Mexican Restaurant in Chicago Heights. The cow is not in the best of shape, has a huge hole in its belly and is quite weathered. The restaurant is somewhat new, so hopefully they will repair the cow.
