Wisconsin is known, after all, for its cheese and with cheese comes cheese shops and with cheese shops comes giant mice sneaking a nibble (along with a few big cows to supply the milk).

Of course, not all big mice in Wisconsin live at cheese shops. This hefty rodent lives at a travel center off of I-94, surrounded by a gas station, a Best Western hotel, and a Perkins restaurant. Though, if cheese is what you’re after, a bit further down the road you’ll find The Mocha Mouse, a restaurant and, you guessed it, cheese shop that seems to have adopted the mouse’s image onto their signage.

The giant cheese mouse is made from fiberglass and wears blue overalls, a bright red shirt, and a bright red hat (similar to a cowboy hat but not as big as his cousin, the cowboy mouse in Oakdale). He sits on top of a red, white, and blue platform that reads, “Wisconsin Cheese, Black River Crossing Oasis,” and holds a big, yellow, piece of cheese which he nibbles on while watching visitors stop to fill up their tanks with gas.

While this mighty mouse is surely enough to drive you from the highway, it isn’t the only roadside oddity you’ll find at this gas station: there’s also a big orange moose and a big jumping deer nearby.
