Teesdale Mercury
For many teenagers, hobbies consist of activities such as sports, music, movies or the arts. Not so for one UK youngster who has turned her hand to taxidermy.

The 17-year-old, from County Durham, England whose first piece was a mole she prepared aged just 11, has been asked to preserve a snowy owl.

The craft that defies death
Eye Witness News
"Most people who ask me what I do for a job think it's a joke," says Philipp Schulz. He has grown accustomed to mixed reactions when he confirms that he is indeed a taxidermist. The tall, blonde 37-year-old certainly doesn't look like what you'd imagine a taxidermist does — whatever that might be. "Some people think it's creepy," he concedes, but many others are fascinated.

New Mexico bans use of drones in hunting
OutdoorHub
Recently, the New Mexico Game Commission voted 5-1 to prohibit the use of drones in harassing wildlife or assisting in the harvest of game animals. Drones, or unmanned aerial vehicles, are seen by many in the hunting community as an unfair advantage and a violation of fair chase ethics. Colorado led the charge to ban drone use for hunting when it outlawed the practice earlier this year, causing other states to consider similar regulations. Alaska and Montana quickly followed suit. Although it is not known exactly how many hunters use drones to scout or track game animals, hunters in New Mexico say they see more aircraft in the skies every season.

Academy of Sciences display: Skulls tell life stories
SFGate
Ray Bandar was 26 years old in 1953 when he found his first dead harbor seal at San Francisco's Ocean Beach. He ended up bringing the head of the seal home on the bus and cleaning it in one of his mom's pots. Next, he found the remains of a young female California sea lion. This time, after doing the decapitation, he buried the skull in his back yard and let bugs do the cleaning. More than a half-century later, Bandar — "just call me Bones," he says — is 87 and has one of the world's largest private collections of animal skulls.

MYFOXNY
Museums hold many different kinds of treasures, from the historical, to the beautiful, and now the morbid.
