I smell something fishy here.

That looks like a taxidermists place based on all the racks drying up sidedown in the back ground. If it was a recent kill, it'd be headed to a laboritory, not to get stuffed.

Those look like mulie racks too. I see a couple of 4 bys.

If this were true the animal would be in the DNR's possession, not in this guy's garage. I smell something fishy here also.

That pic has been posted on here for the last 4 or 5 months.. I'm not sure if the original poster posted it as a joke or not.

Odd that it just happened to have been a taxidermist I can't believe that anyone is even biting on this.
