Bronze badger statue by Ho-Chunk artist Harry Whitehorse to be installed across from Camp Randall
Wisconsin State Journal
A new Badger is coming to town this August.
Across the street from Camp Randall Stadium on Monroe Street, a 10-foot-long bronze statue of a badger — that people will be able to touch and sit on top of — is set to be installed Aug. 21.
Aptly called “The Badger,” the statue is a realistic likeness of the animal, rather than the more cartoonish look of University of Wisconsin mascot Bucky Badger. It has claws, a pointed nose, dark eyes and a fur texture cast in shiny bronze.
