Bayfield, Wisconsin: Large Mechanical Wolf

An animated outdoor sculpture is a super-sized wolf, made from recycled plastic bottles, egg cartons, and other junk. A rope tug makes the wolf howl, or peddling a stationary bike spins a globe inside its gullet.

Large Mechanical Wolf

It was fun to see. The rope was broken, so couldn't make it howl -- but the bicycle works. They have a nice mowed path to it.

An animated sculpture of a wolf, made from recycled plastic bottles, egg cartons, and other such stuff. A rope is attached to the head, and you can pull on it to make the wolf howl. And there's a globe inside the wolf, attached to a stationary bike under it, so that you can pedal the bike and make the globe turn. My kids had a blast with it!
