Mystery statue at Hershey Park Zoo

Does anyone know what the name of this character seen in the photo below is? This statue was at the entrance of Hershey Park Zoo at least in the 1960s. It is unknown when it was removed, either in the late 1960s or when Hershey Park Zoo was closed in 1971.

Hershey Park Zoo was reopened in 1978 as ZooAmerica.

Please leave a comment below if you know what this is. Thanks!
