Not so much a story as a photograph. This image first appeared on the site maintained by Miles Upton. He was kind enough to allow me to include it here. He stumbled upon the place and took this photo:
Miles <BASMPU@aol.com> gave me this information:
"The name of the place is the "Sweatsville Zoo" - the owners name is Sweat ergo the odd name. The location is in Colorado, near Fort Collins. Take the Timnath exit off I-25 and it's the first house East of the highway. He has many sculptures made from ordinary scrap metal including dinosaurs, animals, people, a train, a 40' high fishing pole with fish..."
