14 Taxidermy Mess Ups

Taxidermy is a process of preparing, stuffing, and mounting animal skins and vertebrae to create a life-like representation of the animal for display.  The taxidermy process is a crafted form of art.  Like many other forms of art, there are some great artists and some artists that really need a lot more practice.  When taxidermy is right, it captures the animal in all its glory.  When it goes wrong, it often goes horribly wrong and captures the animal in a not so life-like and less than heroic pose for eternity.

1 This bobcat is looking less like the ferocious feline they are known for and more along the lines of, “You want to do what to me?!?”

3 Move over Yogi and Boo-boo bear, there’s a new bear comedian ready to join you for some laughs and snacks in Yellowstone Park.  “Yo, yo Yogi and Boo-boo!  Where’s my picnic basket?”

4 Did anyone see this cat making its way away from Stephen King’s film, Pet Sematary movie set?  Or maybe the taxidermist forgot to clean and straighten this one up before stuffing to allow it to be a road kill in action.

5  This wolf almost has the right look.  The snarling gnashing teeth are there, but it all just goes wrong with the eyes in the wide open spaces between them.

6 Nothing says fun loving lion more than a goofy smile and googly eyes.  Maybe this lion was just having way too much fun at the party camp the night before its demise.

7 This lion is just popping by to say, “Hey, hey girlfriend!” Stuck as a flirtatious lion until the end of time.  Things could be worse.

8 As a warning to all young people, this fox shows us the dangers of indulging in too many nights smoking the hookah.  This could happen to you!

9 On the flip side, this fox takes a different stance showing how to wait patiently in the dentist’s waiting room.  Be polite, sit up straight and keep smiling while keeping your hands to yourself!

10 Was it the cow that jumped over the moon, or was it the dog that jumped over the world…just can’t seem to remember which.

11 In an attempt to make this leopard look as intimidating as it did in life, something went terribly wrong.  Now it appears to have risen from the dead as a red-eyed flesh eating zombie leopard.  Yikes!

12 Who would have guessed that squirrels were such sexual deviants!  Someone should let him know that flashing went out of style.  Then again, maybe it hasn’t for the small animal kingdom.  No one can be sure.

13 This owl appears to have had a very rough life indeed.  Owls do have a long life, but maybe this one made it a little too long before the taxidermist got ahold of him.

14 This is one tiger that no one wants to meet up with by day or night!  It is highly likely this tiger was part of an animal experimentation that went horribly wrong.

Blind Golden Retriever Makes Fast Friends With His ‘Seeing Eye’ Companion.

If you are a living and breathing human being like us, you hate to see innocent animals suffer. In 2016, Charlie, a golden retriever, would end up losing both of his eyes due to a medical emergency. As an older dog, Charlie didn’t have to grow up without his vision.  Naturally, his owners were concerned about how their dog would adapt to life without being able to see. They knew that they had to do something to help their furry family member, so they decided to adopt a ‘seeing eye’ dog. If you can sense how cute this story is about to be, get ready to grab your tissues. We wouldn’t blame you if you cried from cute joy.

Adam Stipe adopted Charlie when the golden retriever was just a puppy. After nine years together, Charlie ended up losing his left eye due to complications resulting from glaucoma. Within a year, Charlie would lose his right eye, as well. By this time, Adam and his wife Chelsea had emptied their retirement bank account in order to pay for the treatment that had kept Charlie alive. Adam and Chelsea had also recently become pregnant. Talk about sudden life changes! In order to prepare for the baby, as well as better the life of Charlie, they decided to make a change.

When New Year’s Day arrived in 2019, Chelsea and Adam would welcome Maverick into their home. Maverick was an excitable golden retriever puppy who was ready to make new friends. Adam and Chelsea had adopted Maverick for a multitude of reasons. First and foremost, they wanted to bring a puppy home to help Charlie get around the house. Second, Adam and Chelsea also wanted a puppy to grow alongside their newborn baby. While adding a baby and puppy to your house at the same time can be tough, the loving family managed to work it out!

After a bit of tension, Charlie and Maverick would soon become fast friends. In fact, you couldn’t walk around the house with the two golden retrievers running around together. According to Adam and Chelsea, Maverick quickly became a natural ‘guide companion’ for Charlie. Maverick learned to play with and guide Charlie around all without being told. According to Chelsea, “Maverick would realize that Charlie would lose the toy sometimes, so Maverick would pick it up and put it back in front of him to re-engage playtime.”

Due to Maverick’s kindness as well as Charlie’s own loving nature, both dogs have become the best of friends. According to Adam, Charlie has even begun to play like a puppy again. When Charlie was an ‘only dog’, he wouldn’t want to play nearly as much. Despite all the difficulties that life had thrown at Charlie, it is clear that he is being protected, loved, and cared for by the best furry friend anyone could ask for.
