Big Beaver Statue and Me (Beaver, Oklahoma)

Big Beaver Statue and Me (Beaver, Oklahoma)
Made by courthouselover
Beaver, Oklahoma is known for its annual World Championship Cow Chip Throwing Contest in April. The contest is the opener to the week-long Cimarron Territory Celebration. To commemorate the festival, a statue was built of a big beaver holding a large piece of cow poop. He is called the Big Beaver and is located on a mobile trailer that can be moved to different parts of town at different times of the year. It is a must see for those interested in photography and American roadside novelties.
