The widow of a sculptor whose statue of a bear devouring a fish has been on Sparks Street in Ottawa for more than two decades is upset at plans to move the piece to make way for a monument commemorating the donation of the Stanley Cup.
|This Yogi Bear "Graveyard" contained dozens of statues of Yogi Bear, Boo-Boo Bear, Cindy Bear, and Ranger Smith. Since Yogi clutched a chicken drumstick, it's clear that these figures were cast-offs from a Yogi Bear Honey Fried Chicken restaurant. The chain was based in North Carolina. There were non-Yogi fiberglass animals here as well. These statues were installed sometime in the 1970s at a truck stop on the property. However, around 2003, they were dumped behind a fence at the back of the site and began deteriorating. Around 2008, the truck stop was rebuilt and the abandoned statues were removed. It's possible that these Rocky Mount statues shown above came from the truck stop before the rest of them were destroyed. For more, see these websites: 1, 2, 3, and 4. [photo thanks Les Parker]|
