Displayed on a rock outcrop on the west side of the East Drive at the edge of the Ramble, the crouching animal has scared many joggers as they approach this life-size and realistic representation this reporter included. Unlike the traditional sculptures of other animals in the Park that sit on a base or pedestal, Kemeys placed his animal directly atop the ledge of rock. Kemeys was so interested in depicting his animals in a realistic mode that he traveled to the western states to see them in their native habitat.
