Taxidermy Museum.

Wilderness Taxidermy and Wildlife Museum

There is a neat little free Taxidermy Museum in Franklin, NC. It mixes the joys of big game hunting, with excitement of Second Amendment fervor. It has an inordinate amount of taxidermy including hippos, giraffes and an elephant.

Next to most are pictures of the owners standing next to their dead bodies.
