November 14, 2009, the Dunnville Mudcat “Muddy” was un-veiled. A three-year effort to bring the town’s mascot to fruition in bigger-than-life form has been realized. Muddy, the giant mudcat, is 50- foot long, 27-foot high statue’s permanent home at Centennial Park at the western entrance to Dunnville. The mudcat has long been associated with the town especially through its sports teams and proximity to prime fishing. Make the trip to Dunnville Ontario to see the “Big Fish”, Muddy!
