My dad loves to hunt and fish, so it shouldn’t be surprising to know that I grew up in a house filled with mounted animals. Actually, I take that back; my mom only let my dad hang dead critters up in the basement. Nonetheless, the walls down there were packed with fish, deer, snake skins, turkey feathers and an array of wild samples. Thanks to him, I now appreciate taxidermy as an art, and even see it as somewhat elegant. But, as with any art, sometimes it can go very wrong, as evidenced by these botched mounts!
Poor Mr. Fox! I wouldn’t wish this postmortem treatment on my worst enemy. But hey, at least these animals are good for something: making people smile. It’s not the best result, but I would take it. Head on over to the source to see even more photos! [via Daily Mail]
