World's Largest (Maybe) Badger

Also known as: Northern EXposure Nightclub
US 45 between Birnamwood and Aniwa, Wisconsin

A huge, fiberglass badger that stares out at the highway.


Overview Looking East

Note how the fence has been machined to allow the badger a better view of you. The squirrel is also eyeing you up from his perch on top of a large log.

Street View 


This huge badger, along with a large, fiberglass squirrel on a log, used to adorn a gas station on US 45. The station has long since closed and has been repurposed as a nightclub. (Let's just say that you wouldn't take your family there.)

The squirrel used to be part of a canopy over the gas pumps, the canopy has been enclosed but the squirrel and his log are still there.

It certainly catches your eye as you drive past!
