Wildcat and cardinal.

Gas Station Wildcat

Once inside, turn right toward the gift shop and seating area. You'll see the case near the front wall.

Gas Station Wildcat

Inside the BP gas station is a display case. Inside the case is a taxidermy wildcat chasing a cardinal, symbolizing the rivalry between Louisville and University of Kentucky. Definitely an odd place to find such a display.
