The remains of Soviet soliders at Miasnoï Bor or ” forest of meat”, located in the Novgorod region, part of the famous Death Valley in Russia. It is a marshy area where hundreds of thousands of soldiers were killed during the Second World War. Today it is believed there are hundreds of thousands, if not millions of soldiers still buried in the area.

"Street artist DS recently added a couple of paste-ups to a wall in London. It didn’t take too long before a graffiti removal guy removed the paste-ups. Shortly after that, DS was back with a paste up of the graffiti removal guy removing the graffiti."
i made a new blog specifically for taxidermy and vulture culture purposes, since i am getting into doing taxidermy/skinning as an actual job on a daily basis and i don’t want to continue to post animal carcasses here when i know more than a few people are uncomfortable with it.
i’ll probably still reblog bones and stuff here but the more gory “process” pictures and a lot of discussion will be moved to that blog instead. i’ll also be posting some various still-alive animal pictures to pad it out some.
i was skinning a duck and a woman came up to the shop, asking if i’d like homemade tamales and thats like asking a coke addict if he’d like some blow
how about that last gif though
Nothing about this was necessary.
Another public service announcement and educational post! Many people are unaware that it is federally illegal to sell mounted taxidermy cats and dogs. You can pay to have your cat or dog mounted, but it cannot be resold if you were to ever tire of it. The Dog and Cat Fur Protection Act is what makes it illegal. This was put in place by the Federal Trade Commission because China was exporting dog and cat furs into the US and illegally mislabeling them as “Chinese wolf or Chinese wildcat fur.” The Act strictly says cat and dog pelts and pelt products; since taxidermy only uses the pelt it makes it illegal to sell. As for jarred wet specimens and mummies, it is up to the sellers interpretation of the law it seems. The definition of pelt says the skin of an animal and most jarred specimens or mummies are whole or the skin is intact. The Federal Trade Commission doesn’t take violations lightly and they even offer rewards to people who help turn violators in. With how trendy all this has become it is a good idea to read up on laws or pass info around whenever possible.
