Outlaw: Canada's Wall Street Bull

Field review by the editors.

Calgary, Alberta

Outlaw was a real bull that was ridden just once in 71 attempts. In 2004, he rang the closing bell at the New York Stock Exchange, the only animal ever to do that. Then he died, gored by another bull.

The commodities traders of the Calgary Exchange found inspiration in the raging dead bull, and in 2010 they had an 11-foot-tall bronze statue of Outlaw erected in the park facing their office tower. Scowling, frozen in mid-buck, nostrils flared, the statue weighs over 1,100 pounds, which is actually 600 pounds less than the real Outlaw.
