Taxidermy Looks Easy


Recommended Posts

Whenever I need a wee chuckle to brighten me up, this thread is absolute catnip.

See if the bible was full of inventive, artistic taxidermic reimaginings of all the folk in it that were murdered, I'm sure the world would be a very happy place.

(Granted, some religions might be slightly queasy about Auntie Joan becoming Auntie Drone, but you get my point............)

Always delighted when this thread gets a bump. Possibly the hardest I've ever laughed at anything on the internet.

I am hugely disappointed that 20p for a cuppa tea is gone.

To understand why animal lover Barry Green calls himself a 'hands-on environmentalist' you only need to see him get hold of a feral cat. 

Mr Green traps, shoots and skins feral cats then turns their pelts into stubby holders, golf club covers and purses.

Cat hat anyone?

Genuinely if it was my decision this man would be locked up for the rest of his life.

I'm sure a lot of folk in Oz think he's doing a great job.

Feral cats

Feral cats are decendants of domesticated cats, that are wild born.

Ecological damage

Feral cats are a major invasive species and have been linked to the decline and extinction of various native animals in Australia. They have been shown to cause a significant impact on ground-nesting birds and small native mammals.[12] Feral cats have also hampered attempts to reintroduce threatened species back into areas where they have become extinct, as the cats quickly kill the newly released animals.[13] Environmentalists conclude that feral cats have been an ecological disaster in Australia, inhabiting almost all of its ecosystems, and being implicated in the extinction of several marsupial and placental mammal species.[14][15]

A field experiment conducted in Heirisson Prong (Western Australia) compared small mammal populations in areas cleared of both foxes and cats, of foxes only, and a control plot. Researchers found the first solid evidence that predation by feral cats can cause a decline in native mammals. It also indicates that cat predation is especially severe when fox numbers have been reduced.[16] Cats may play a role in Australia's altered ecosystems; with foxes they may be controlling introduced rabbits, particularly in arid areas, which themselves cause ecological damage. Cats are believed to have been a factor in the extinction of the only mainland bird species to be lost since European settlement, the paradise parrot.[17] Cats in Australia have no natural predators except dingoes and wedge-tailed eagles, and as a result, they are apex predators where neither the dingo nor the eagle exists.[18] Also, dingos do not appear to affect the activity of cats.[19]

If I lived in Australia I'd be thanking these cats killing other animals considering 99% of wild animals in Australia are trying to kill you.

Imagine your car breaks down on a dirt road miles from civilisation, your mobile phone is out of power, and the front door on the nearby house is open. You knock and call out a greeting, but nobody seems to be home. You debate with yourself for a few minutes, but decide to see if there's a phone you can use. You carefully enter, apologies at the ready, turning in to the living room, only to see...

Cats. Dead cats everywhere. There's a cat skin lampshade, a cat mangled into shape around a clock, piles of bleached bones littering the floor - everything is made of cats. The stuck-on googly eyes on their faces stare blankly back at you, unable to reflect their anguished final moments at the hands of a maniac. You turn to run, but the doorway behind you is blocked by this face. You accept your fate; the only consolation is that you aren't feline enough to become part of the display. You'll join the other trespassers under the litter box floor of Feral's End. Sleep now.
