This huge headless eagle used to be on display at an establishment near the West Entrance to Glacier National Park, but now resides in the front lot of a recycler.

I am tempted to make an offer for the legs; I think they would make pretty gnarly tables! :D
What do you think @jsorensenart? Fire up that torch? :)

What a once stunning sculpture that must have been. Too bad it can't be repaired. Great catch. You totally should get the legs!!

@amandalomonaco It was pretty cool, but they had it mounted high on an arch and it totally blocked the great mountain vista. I am sure they were pressured to take it down.

@lwain Hmm, it could happen! :)

Love how it it positioned perfectly for a dead bird. Even the missing head is right. Go get those legs man. What are you waiting for? LOL

Getting the legs off could be a problem! It is a sad sight,

@aromatic Haha, that would take up my whole back garden! That thing is huge!
