Grand Forks, ND (WDAY TV) -- A little bit of country life has planted itself in the middle of East Grand Forks.

Mayor Lynn Stauss and other city officials have placed animal statues around town, with cattle and horses near City Hall and buffalo at the boardwalk.

The animals have generated a lot of attention and entertainment for local kids. Students at area schools played a special role in bringing the animals to town.

Lynn Stauss - East Grand Forks Mayor: "We had schools from all over the region paint these animals so they know their animal when they see it out here and what they did with it so I think it's real good for the region."

The animals will stay out until August.
