Intense Portraits Reveal The Real Faces Of America’s Taxidermists
It’s easy to gloss over the world of taxidermy, pigeonholing the people who practice the craft as morbid morticians of the animal kingdom. Photographer Mike McGregor would disagree with you, however.
I spy Katie Innamorato of Afterlife Anatomy in the fifth picture! Great photoset all around.
Please and thank you!
I just wanted to point out another problem that pops up with declawed cats.
Not only are they most likely in constant pain and will suffer more problems as they age, but when you declaw a cat, you are taking away it’s first line of defense and its warning…
I like to share. Sharing is sort of what I do.
But please don’t post big chunks of my website to Tumblr without attributions, okay? I am a writer. My words are my life. Having them go around as public domain or “I dunno who wrote this, just somebody” hurts…
I think what you do is just awful. How would you like it if you were decapitated and skinned and left to rot for maggots? I cant believe you would be so disrespectful for mother nature like that. Ok they're dead, they obviously wouldn't know, but it's the fact you are cutting the animals into pieces that they were never meant to be. Its so awful its really upsetting that someone can be ok with that whole idea of cutting up once living creatures, with thoughts, blood and emotions like you and me.
I cherish the animal even after death and it can be passed onto other people who cherish it’s beauty as well.
please stop shooting wildlife as a sport
so that wildlife can overpopulate and die slow painful deaths because bawwwrr bambi makes me SAD
The notes on this post (not just the ones you see here, of course) are a great reminder of why hunting isn’t just a simple right/wrong situation.
