This monument to the Hamm’s Bear stands outside the Hamm Building in downtown St. Paul.
What irks me about this is why didn’t the Hamm’s Bear earn a ful-fledged statue? The guy’s an institution! Mary Tyler Moore had a shorter run and spent less time on TV than this famous local character.
While I doubt we’ll ever see it, a Snoopy-style Hamm’s Bear statues around town deal would be an awesome tribute to our hard working bear.
