The Coon Dog Cemetery

The Key Underwood Coon Dog Memorial Graveyard is located in Colbert County in northwest Alabama. The location had been a hunting camp for coon hunters. Key Underwood buried his beloved dog Troop there in 1937. Other hunters started doing the same when their favorite coon dogs died. Today more than 185 coon dogs from all across the United States are buried in this spot which has became a popular tourist attraction and is the only cemetery of its kind in the world.
