various statues
Fargo, ND
Various statues were located across the street at Woodchuck Furniture Restoration. The statues began appearing around 2006. In 2020, a fire engulfed the building and most of the dozens of metal and fiberglass animal statues were either destroyed or sold. There were also windmills, a Pinocchio, moai, and a Muffler Man. The surviving rooster, buffalo, bear, cow, eagle, and longhorn bull were moved to the house across the street. [map]

America's Fiberglass Animals [gone]
Shelton, NE
America's Fiberglass Animals was another fiberglass statue manufacturer. The company was later known as Fiberglass Animals and Objects. These photos are from 2008. The business is gone now. The company had many of the molds from Prewitt Fiberglass Animals, one of the biggest producers of fiberglass statues in the 1960s. For more, see this website.

R.P. Creations [gone]
Berlin, NH
I don't believe R.P. Creations is still in business. Raymond A. Paulin is or was the artist behind most of the fiberglass statues. These photos are from 2007. By 2016, the statues were gone. The Moose in Gorham, NH was produced by R.P. Creations.

Del Buono's Bakery
Haddon Heights, NJ
Del Buono's Bakery has a variety of large animal statues including a rooster, a gorilla, a cow, a donkey, a lion, a rabbit, a Poodle, and a couple pigs. Some of these figures appear to be mini golf cast-offs. There are also gold human figures which look like they were from a cemetery and wine barrels from who knows where. These photos are from 2009. By 2016, the building had been demolished and replaced with a larger one. Some of these statues are gone now. [map]

Craig Ranch Regional Park
North Las Vegas, NV
The Craig Ranch Regional Park playground features a gecko sandbox, a tarantula with web rope climb, and a rattlesnake slide. The statues were installed there around 2014. There is another rattlesnake slide in Fort McDowell, AZ. [map]
