Wampus Cat
Itasca, TX
This Wampus Cat statue was installed at an Exxon station. This version of Wampus Cat has only two arms. The Wampus Cat is the local high school's mascot. It seems to be just a coincidence that the statue bears a resemblance to the standing tigers associated with Esso (later Exxon) gas stations. Esso's tigers were fiberglass while this statue is plaster over wire mesh. In 2009, this statue was hit by a car and badly damaged. It is now in a city storage yard. These photos are from 2011. It is not known if the statue will be repaired or destroyed. For more, see this website.
