The short drive to Wahpeton is worthwhile even if you only go to see Wahpper. At 25 tons and 40 feet long he is the largest channel catfish statue in the world, a monument to Wahpeton’s natural beauty who welcomes guests crossing the Red River from Minnesota. And he looks sharper than ever in his new coat of paint!
I openly admit that I was thrown out of a zoo once. I was about eight or nine years old and left unattended at a little zoo in Massachusetts. (I believe my grandmother wanted to go to Filene’s.) At this zoo you could buy big, flavorless crackers to feed to the llamas and donkeys, and I, an abnormally empathetic and dumb child, felt sorry for the black bear who had to go without any crackers. I climbed over the fence to hand a zwieback to the bear, who did seem genuinely interested in the gesture, when a zookeeper spotted me, administered a sternly worded lecture about arms and their detachability, and then saw me out.
