For the dreamers whom never submit

LET ME EASE YOUR WILD SPIRITS.   SHARE   -Both animals dead and alive will be featured on this blog. Warning: Not for the easily offended.

From a very young age I had to learn how to sustain myself. For me, the notion of survival came easily. Ever since I could remember, I have used the observation of animals to learn the ways of our nature; and what a teacher they make.

Though only 16, I have devoted my life to become the best individual I can be for the paramount of not only our species, but all of the others that so graciously share this earth with us. I try and do my part of upholding the traditional and natural world that was created for us--as only someone with an old soul could.

My interest in taxidermy and the natural world began as soon as I stared into the eyes of our first dog, Jenny. Not only did I see the brown orbs of her lab irises, but the spirit that was hidden underneath. The yearning to learn as much about the different wild things that walk among us slowly bloomed into what it is now, and what it will forever remain. The animals I am honored to work with come from second hand sources, roadkill, my family's own harvested game and fellow artists, antique stores or from those taken for population control. Each individual animal is taken with proper tags and cites, and the laws for the state I reside in, in mind. This ensures that I can enjoy the creations I make, without mistaking my calculations for work that is not intentionally disrespectful.

Careful, my yellow eyes and I live a doppelgänger life, a wolf is inevitably who I will always be. All of you who live your lives hollering like the wonders we are, will always find a home here in the midst of my blog.

New wolf pelt! Today means a lot to me, this wolf means a lot to me and I am so excited to FINALLY be able to have him/her in my life. The wolf is 85 inches long, making it the biggest of my collection. I’ll share the full story as to why this wolf means so much to me later. The pictures are Moscow’s, I’m just sharing them!

I find this bit to be problematic, “The more than 100-pound wolves are nothing more than docile dogs. If you think you have what it takes to adopt these guys, call the sanctuary.”
No, no, no! Wolfdogs require a hell of a lot more care and specialized housing to keep them safely. I’m sure the sanctuary will stress those points with anyone who calls to try and adopt the animals, but it sure would be great if the news wouldn’t make people think they are the same as taking care of a pure dog.  Hopefully the news will help them in placing the animals, but still.
Statements like that will just land them right back in a rescue scenario or euthanized. Yeesh though, looks like they were already in a pretty bad situation to begin with :(

Holy hell, I live in Fort Myers. I wasn’t aware of this…I really do hope they find the proper homes they deserve!

Who wants to come help me skin and butcher a giant old goat? →

naturepunk:

Farmer buddy brought a big old goat over just now. She died giving birth (thankfully, her offspring did indeed survive!), and the farmer even helped me hang her up in the shop since she weighs as much or more than I do. He also gave me a few horns from some of his previous goats and two dried…
