We were in Rice Lake, Wisconsin last week to take care of some business. Well, B had to take care of some business and we went along. Near to the office B had to visit was this place called Bear Paw Outfitters. Since L wanted to look for a sleeping bag anyway, we decided to check out this store while we waited for B.
Imagine my surprise when we walked in and saw all of this!
Lions and tigers and bears.....without the lions.
Everywhere I looked there were dead animals. Hanging from the walls, on display stands and in little "nature" tableaus.
I've never seen a spotted deer.
But I have seen a moose.
The animals displayed were not limited to this area. They had examples of things you can kill from all over the world. Just in case you get bored with killing all the wildlife up here.
Coyotes are very common around here . We had them on our farm and their howls late at night are really creepy. They are really good at keeping the barn cat population under control though.
Not Smokey the Bear.
This tiger was huge. I wondered how they got these exotic species way up north. Is there a stuffed animal store that I don't know about?
Albino deer. Surprising that it lived as long as it did before somebody shot this unusual creature.
Moose and bison too.
Goat on a real imitation mountain.
I was elated when I found these. Somebody is going to be a very happy Minnesotan living in Cancun!
