If you’ve ever wondered what snowmen eat for sustenance, this should answer the question. John Curley spotted this snowman in Cincinnati, and since the picture generated interest, went back to the house to talk with the sculptor.
Despite his somewhat intimidating appearance, Bart Motz is a friendly, soft-spoken guy who seemed more amused than anything when I told him my friend in San Francisco wanted to publish a picture of his snowman on a blog. As it turns out, I was the second unexpected visitor with questions about his snowman. The SPCA had paid him a visit earlier in the day after a passing motorist called them complaining that a real raccoon was being tortured and “still moving.” The raccoon is a hat and the blood is red paint.
