A taxidermied buffalo that is famously, or infamously, large. The last survivor of a failed buffalo farm, the unnamed beast became a familiar sight to travelers as it grazed along a popular road, with many local sets of directions beginning with “turn at the giant buffalo.” By the time of its death it was a local tourist attraction with several business in town named after it, such as the Buffalo Grocery and the Buffalo Gas Station. Taxidermied after its death in a winter ice storm, the buffalo now resides in a special pavilion as a the nucleus of a small buffalo themed tourist trap as “the world’s largest stuffed buffalo,” occasionally referred to in travel guides as the “Stuffalo.”
