Strange Alabama- Coon Dog Graveyard

 

There’s is a pet cemetery in Cherokee,Alabama, dedicated solely to the rest place of many a man’s best hunting friend.

Coon hunting is an entertaining pastime for men all over the South but in order to be successful at it you need a trusty steed; you need a coon dog. Hunters begin working with their partners when they’re only pups and Key Underwood Coon Dog Memorial Graveyard is evidence of the family-like relationships that emerge.

Named after Key Underwood the cemetery was established in 1937 after Underwood buried Troop, his coon dog, in the small grassy meadow. The pair had been hunting together for 15 years and Underwood knew that this particular spot was one of Troop’s favorites.

Today, the graveyard has become a popular tourist attraction and now houses the graves of over 185 coon dogs from all across the U.S. There are all kinds of different headstones made of many different materials and are unlike traditional headstones found in a normal cemetery.
