"Get stuffed: The Disturbing Animals Created when Taxidermy Goes Wrong," The Daily Mail, 2011
The Daily Mail's article "Get stuffed: The disturbing animals created when taxidermy goes wrong"--which profiles the activity of the Facebook group "Badly Stuffed Animals"--has been rapidly making the internet rounds. In an oddly proud moment, I found that the article showcases one of the more disturbing pieces from The Niagara Falls Museum that we have on show as part of The Great Coney Island Spectacularium. Can you guess which one it is? Hint: it is unable to stand on its own two legs...
To see this piece in person, come down to The Great Coney Island Spectacularium! You can read the article and see the full collection by clicking here.
Thanks to Eleanor Crook and Matt Haber for sending this my way.
