Old Three Legs outwitted a sheep farmer’s best efforts to capture him by chewing his own leg off to get out of a trap. He went on to cause problems for many more farmers and settlers for years after that, with his tracks spotted around a wide region of central Northwestern Minnesota. Today, he’s on permanent display at the Becker County Museum.
