Taking the meer out of meercat

In its relentless search for oversized realistic animal sculptures OTN has discovered cloud breakers in the form of horses, moose and deer. Drawn to the conclusion that it was some kind of psychic marriage between man and hooves, we abandoned the search for the fabled 60-metre high guinea pig. Now a reader has presented a clear winner in the giant animal sculpture and what's more it's in the rare combustible material category. This Meercat stands at 36 feet high and, in case you think it is a mindless one-off, our OTN operative tells us that Chris Sadler and his wife Cheryl have been coming up with straw sculptures since 1998.
