Prairie Dog Town

Description

Though the highway billboards hype the star attraction as an 8,000-pound prairie dog -- which turns out to be a monstrous concrete sculpture on its haunches -- the real celebrities here are the freakish animal anomalies, some live and some mounted. Penned up in a dusty field behind this old gas station among 200 or so other inmates -- coyotes, badgers, and buffalo, to name a few -- are three cows with extra legs. Inside you'll find the stuffed heads and butts of various malformed animals, including a two-headed calf. Amid this circus wild prairie dogs pop in and out of their burrows and scamper about underfoot. Located on US 83 just south of I-70, Prairie Dog Town charges admission and is open for business from Memorial Day through Labor Day.
