White King – The World’s Largest Stuffed Polar Bear; Elko, Nevada

This was the one thing I wanted to see while in Elko, which is where I was going to spend the night while road tripping across the US on I-80. White King (the name they give the bear) is supposedly the biggest polar bear ever killed— it was by an Eskimo, and later purchased by the Casino …


As it turned out the hotel it was in, The Commercial Casino, was JUST across the parking lot from the Ramada (Stockman’s Casino).

Imagine coming face to face with that out on the ice…. the Eskimo who killed him must have been terrified.
