After looking up in a street in Annecy and seeing a sign that shows the pedestrianised area used to be a main highway, I’ve started looking up more frequently. My efforts were rewarded pretty quickly when I saw this cow on top of a bus stop!
Annecy has never hosted the Cow Parade, so seeing a random cow on top of a bus stop shelter does seem a bit unusual. However, the area is known for its local cheeses, especially Reblochon and Tomme Blanche, so maybe a cow on a bus stop shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise. I’ve no idea why it’s there or how long it’s been there. It reminds me of the big shark tail poking out of a house in Oxford, and I’m sure there are plenty of other examples of giant animal figurines in various parts of the world. Do you know of any others?
