Chainsaw Colonel Sanders Statue

The Colonel is gone. I stopped there last week. I asked an employee about it and was told he was removed last month (April) and no one knows where he is. I even stopped at the KFC Museum and nobody there knew either.

He is just as I remember him being in a white suit. He stands with his cane and chickens. It was our last stop through Corbin on our way south. He is very close to the interstate, for those passing by.
