African Elephant statue.

Elephant Statue - Breeding Ranch Tribute

This elephant stands at a busy street corner in the parking lot of a convenience store. He is very large and is accompanied by a small sign explaining the breeding program. Not something you would expect to find in this area.

Elephant Statue - Breeding Ranch Tribute

You can see the statue from the turnpike. Look south under the Harley Davidson sign. A police officer is under the bridge; slowing down saved us a ticket!
