This statue of two embracing bears was put here in 1939 to commemorate 80 years of the Metropolitan Drinking Fountain and Cattle Trough Association. It promoted temperance - ie not drinking alcohol - as well as providing water for market-bound cattle and horses. The original was stolen but replaced with this recast copy in 1970.
