The moose has long been an iconic image associated with Minnesota. These creatures used to be quite common in the northern part of the state, although a sighting is quite rare these days as significant numbers have died off in the last couple decades. Much like bears and wolves, moose remain elusive, mysterious, and an icon of Minnesota’s northwoods. Here are some statues commemorating them.
Honk the Moose is a statue of a life-size moose in the Iron Range town of Biwabik, MN. The moose is a depiction of a real life moose who made his winter home in town during the winter of 1935. He stands in a city park in the middle of town, easily visible on the main drag.
