Clem T. GoFur - Gopher Mascot

Clem T. GoFur - Gopher Mascot

Field review by the editors.

Torrington, Alberta

On his stone pedestal, this bib-overall-wearing cartoon mascot stands about 12 feet tall. Erected in 1991, Clem T. GoFur's popularity spurred the creation of the town's famous Gopher Hole Museum in 1995.

Torrington was aghast in 2013 when Clem was found toppled from his pedestal, the victim of what the town called "inherent design flaws" and possibly some gopher-hating fiend giving Clem a hard push. The smiling fiberglass rodent was rebuilt, repaired, and reattached with enhanced nudge-proof anchoring in 2015.
