Trees of Mystery’s Babe Losses Its Head

During a usual visit to the Trees of Mystery’s in Klamath, California, ‘Babe the Blue Ox,’ greets everyone who stops in. But for the time being, a blue tarp is replacing the usual sight of the 35-foot tall statue’s head.


A leak in the top of the Babe’s neck allowed water to seep into the blue, stucco and chicken wire structure and compromise the wood. The head dropped straight on its nose, crumbling the stout and breaking off a tip of one of its horns.

The original Babe from the 1940s, moved and bellowed loud moos. The head should be back on the statue by the first week of January 2008.
