The Jackalope statue originated in Douglas and serves as an iconic symbol of the city. Situated atop a concrete structure in the bustling downtown area, this impressive Jackalope sculpture stands at a towering height of 8 feet, making it the world’s tallest of its kind. Crafted entirely from top-grade bronze, this sculpture exhibits an incredibly lifelike appearance.
Discover the Story Behind the Sculpture：
Douglas is the unofficial birthplace of the big-eared, horned animal of North American folklore and the self-appointed “Jackalope Capital of the World,” This Jackalope animal was created by Douglas Herrick in 1932. Upon returning from a hunt, Herrick and his brothers attached antelope horns to jackrabbit bodies while making taxidermy specimens, and sold their creations to local hotels, thus popularizing from that time until now.
The Jackalope is the official sacred animal of the state of Wyoming. In 2007, the state of Wyoming purchased an even larger bronze jackalope sculpture from a man in the northwest. The jackalope sculpture, nearly twice the size of its nearby cousin, now sits in front of the Douglas Railroad Interpretive Center.
