Cheese House Mouse and Cow

There's a milk can cow and a large mouse eating cheese. The real cheese is inside and is fabulous -- made on the premises.

[Kathy & Ron NxNE, 06/28/2015]

Wisconsin has several different big cheese-eating mice scattered across the state; this one looks like a close cousin to the mouse in Windsor. The cow uses a milk can for a head and fuel tank for a body.
