El Toro, Flea Market Bull

A large fiberglass bull grazes in the parking lot at Big Daddy's Flea Market, northeast of Las Cruces. Visitor tips (usually in tandem with reports on the flea market's armless Muffler Man) date back to 2000.

We visited in 2010; the bull is relatively unchanged since then.
