Bill, my prized taxidermy squirrel was created at a shop called Dreaming Badger. It is a little out of my usual route but the other day I was passing by with a few minutes to spare.
They have a lot of bears.
As to why it was effectively a Bull Market for Bears the owner indicated that several of these had become without homes due to spousal refusal to have them about. In one instance there was a divorce involved.
And there was other stuff too.
I found the raccoon to be a little alarming. I am sure it was supposed to look as if it was poking its head out of a hole in a tree trunk. But the actual effect looked more like a hideous raccoon-fungus hybrid.
Finally, speaking as one who has been closer than you should get to a live moose, here is what a stuffed one looks like close up.
Yes, I do like me some taxidermy. Maybe the existing bear skin rug - a ridiculous bargain at an antique shop - needs an upgrade.
