I recently viewed a video on YouTube. It was about a guy giving a tour of Disneyland. This particular video happened to be about Frontierland.
He spoke of some of the animals' fate. He said that some were used in WDW and Disneyland. The rest got buried in "Big Thunder Ranch". I never heard that before and wondered if that guy really knew his stuff, or if he was just trying to start a legend.
Even if the animals were broken, why would they do that? I would think it would be better to fix them up and just re-fit them for the Rivers. That's just sad. How would the animals get that broken anyway?
I do remember reading (can't remember where) that the bear that used to inhabit the bank of the Rivers that was where the eagle's nest now is was from "Nature's Wonderland". He looked like he was always in bad shape and stopped working a few years ago, so I gues that is somewhat believable. Was it even there before they refurbed the Rivers this past spring?
Anyway, it's something I've always been curious about. I thought that some of you guys would be able to shed some light on this issue. Maybe we can make "Monster Quest: The Lost Animals of Nature's Wonderland".
Here's the video link in case you guys are interested:

He doesn't start talking about that until 6:22.
