Huskie the Muskie is the nickname of a 40-foot-tall (12 m) outdoor sculpture depicting a muskellunge in Kenora, Ontario's McLeod Park.The first Huskie was constructed in 1967 as a potential Canadian Centennial project by Jules Horvath and Bob Selway from Deluxe Signs and Displays under the direction of the Kenora Chamber of Commerce. Since then the effigy has received national recognition in part due to its size and position alongside the Trans-Canada highway. The original was rebuilt in 1995. A call to the public was made for a suitable name for the giant fish and from the hundreds of entries received the name "Huskie the Muskie" was agreed upon by the committee. The winner was Bill Brabooke, who also included a slogan with the name which said, "Huskie the Muskie says Prevent Water Pollution". Huskie appears in many movies as a sign of travel across the country, along with Max the Moose in Dryden, Ontario and Wawa, Ontario's Goose. Movies include:[2008] One Week: Ben stops to pose beside Huskie

Husky The Muskie , Kenora Reviews - Write a Review

  • Great views. Nice spot for pictures. It would be nice if people would stop vandalizing the sculpture though.

  • Cool to see but hard to find because obscure visibility of site. Parking can be an issue on market wednesdays.

  • Overlooking the lake the large fish stands erect attracting tourists for photos and lake views.

  • Must see attraction for visitors! Loved seeing it on my past trip

  • it would seem to be the equivalent of the giant nickle or the big goose. The geyser helps make this even better..nice attraction.
