Babe loses head, Bunyan not a suspect
KLAMATH, Calif. - Babe the Blue Ox has lost his head. Ax-wielding Paul Bunyan is not a suspect. The head fell off the 35-foot-tall statue of giant lumberjack Bunyan's mythical sidekick Tuesday, landing snout down on the pavement in the northern California town of Klamath.
Jeff LaForest, manager of the gift shop where the statue stands, says water was seeping inside the statue. That weakened the wood inside the structure and caused the collapse.
LaForest said he will repair Babe as soon as possible. In the meantime, he plans to use a diminutive stuffed animal head as a placeholder in time for the town's annual Christmas light show.
"It's kind of sad isn't it?" LaForest said.

............Nah! On second thought, I'll leave that one alone.
