At first glance, it looks like a bronze statue of a stampeding bull – but this near life-size sculpture at Calgary Airport is actually made from chocolate.

The 500kg creation was unveiled yesterday (July 5) to mark the 100-year anniversary of the Calgary Stampede.

Passengers will have 10 days to see the bull – but Calgary Airport bosses are warning visitors: “You can look, but you can’t taste!”

A locally-owned chocolatier donated the sculpture to the airport.

Alana Antonelli, marketing manager for Chocolaterie Bernard Callebaut, said: “As a local Calgary company we wanted to offer unique tribute to the centennial year celebrations of the Calgary Stampede.

“The airport is absolutely the perfect place to showcase the bull.”

The bull, which took 140 hours to construct, will be displayed until July 15 on the departure level in Kananaskis Hall.
