Bennington can have 'em. We did the moose thing in Toronto a few years back:
Them critters wuz EVERYWHERE, blocking the sidewalks, crowding people out of the public squares and sucking the dignity out of the one or two remaining historic buildings in a city that doesn't believe in history. Oh, and it seemed to somebody to be great sport to put a moose or two under any overhang likely to be large enough to give a body shelter from a sudden downpour. Fun is fun (and fundraising is fundraising) but the display went on long enough to really make pedestrian life miserable.
That said, there were two brilliant paint jobs -- one in the style of a cigar-store Indian, and a very nice petroglyphic treatment of a "female" (antlers not installed). Almost made up for the silly stuff. Almost.
