The wolf is located more than a mile from Bryant-Denny Stadium where the University of Alabama and Louisiana State University – the top two college football teams according to the Associated Press – will meet at 3:30 p.m. ET. Trump is set to attend the game in what will be his third appearance at a major sporting event in the last two weeks.
In preparation for Trump's appearance, Nic Gulas helped organize a GoFundMe campaign to raise $ 4,000 to bring the "Baby Trump" balloon to the game. The campaign ended up collecting $ 7,882 in two days.
The wolf is located near the corner of Hackberry Lane and 15th Street, Gulas told CNN via Twitter.
"So the environment is good, honestly. There will be many protesters in front of it. Every now and then a car will shout like & # 39; Trump 2020! & # 39; or & # 39; Keep America Great !, & # 39; but it's been positive, "Gulas told CNN via Twitter.
The "Baby Trump" wolf actually rose to prominence in July 2018 after it was seen floating in the houses of Britain's Parliament for two hours during widespread protests against Trump's visit to the United Kingdom . Leo Murray, an activist who organized the blimp look in London, told CNN at the time that the giant balloon was designed to speak to Trump "in a language he understands, which is personal insult. "
Since then, the balloon designed by Matt Bonner has appeared in a number of places, including New Jersey and Scotland.
