Helmuth Pfennig Wildlife Museum

The Helmuth Pfennig Wildlife Museum. Helmuth is an interesting character, a farmer-made-good who likes to run all over the world hunting things (though at least one person told me it's likely his guide had to do the shooting... *I* don't know!). He has stuff ranging from mountain goats to zebras to an 8' bear to more ordinary things mounted and hung, some in semi-realistic settings; and a few, er, unusual items such as canes made of elephant... um... reproductive organs. (Sigh.)
