Recent-ish Road News: Critters (Pt. 1)

The animal statue section at my site is really big.  I’m only about halfway through the link & map checking.  But here’s what I can report so far.  Lots of losses.

The Chicken Cadillac in Bandera, TX is gone now.  Here’s a photo I took in 2011:banderachick
Thankfully, there are still lots of Chicken Cars out there:
