|"A bizarre collection of
stuffed animals could fetch up to £2 million when it is sold by
a Cornwall museum. The Museum of Curiosities is home to a menagerie of
10,000 Victorian stuffed animals.
"The museum, next to the Jamaica Inn on Bodmin Moor, gets about 30,000 visitors a year. But now the inn's owner Kevin Moore has decided to sell. Mr Moore said: 'It was very fashionable to have taxidermy on your mantlepiece in Victorian times, but it is not really in favour now.'
"The museum was opened in 1861 by taxidermist Walter Potter.Tableaux include a kittens tea party, cricket-playing guinea pigs and swinging frogs."
no more gross than digging up native american and
egyptian remains and putting them on display or stuffing them
in some backroom cabinet.
