Where do Olympic mascots go when they “die”?

Ever wonder what  happened to that Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic mascot “Quatchi” — the stocky, smiling sasquatch with the blue earmuffs?  Seems he’s hanging out in a tree beside the Fraser River in Prince George, British Columbia — at least that’s where I happened upon him a few weeks ago…

Perhaps he was enjoying the autumn sun during a tour of his reputed home of “Canada’s mysterious forests”?

Nice to see that, almost two years after his Olympic contract went belly up, he’s still smiling!  Good man!
