Mr. and Mrs. Gorilla - Gone

The gorilla statutes no longer exist. Per the man behind the counter, they deteriorated, and although they've thought about replacing them, there are no immediate plans to do so. They have gorilla stuffed animals and gorilla stools to sit on at the food counter, but nothing really that qualifies as a roadside attraction.

Mr. and Mrs. Gorilla

At the service station in Krebs, just outside of McAlester, OK, is this pair of gorillas. They change outfits every season and from what I've heard, have been stolen once or twice only to be brought back. Wonder why?
