Photo: Canadian Goose Statue Wawa Ontario

A massive Canadian Goose statue is erected in the town of Wawa, Ontario and is a fixture that is not easily missed.

Most statues that are displayed in towns tower above people passing by, but this Canadian Goose in the town of Wawa, Ontario is one that makes you feel like you might get swooped down on. It's massive wing span appearing as if he is ready to take off and his long neck stand twenty-eight feet high making this Canadian Goose one of the largest ever seen in Canada.

Made out of metal, this statue was built in 1963 and is very meaningful to the community of Wawa, Ontario. The town received its name from the Ojibwe word wewe, which stands for "wild goose" and it was decided that a statue should resemble the name of the town.

Wawa, Ontario is a popular location for snowmobiling during the winter and fishing in the summer but beware of all the geese that love to hang around the shores of Wawa Lake during the spring and fall migration. The first statue of a Canadian Goose was made of plaster and did not survive the climate, but the statue that stands today has brought millions of visitors to the town of Wawa. ... continue below the picture...
