Chain Saw Art Exhibit at Monterey Fair

Not too far from the rabbit judging area, rabbit exhibitors could see a mountain lion on a truck!

Curious rabbit people goes to the other side and saw this wooden mountain lion with a wolf on the truck.
Our rabbit judges comment that it's really hard to give comments when there are so much machine noise in addition to the regular fair noise.   

The chain saw artists are exhibiting their art work and even doing life demonstration with their chain saw work.

These are the "companions" of the mountain lion on the truck.

Owls and other birds seem to be one of the major choice of this chain saw artist.

This chain saw artist is ready to give information.

This is an impressive looking eagle.
