The exact location of Diesel's grave shall remain a secret. Either way, it is not in the oldest animal cemetery in the world, as had previously been expected.Recently, a 62-year-old man wrote a letter in which he expressed his wish to build a statue in tribute of Diesel. He has launched a fundraising campaign to commission the statue if you'd like to donate.
