Leg Hold Traps

Leg Hold Traps

Description:

These are Victor brand leg hold traps, size 1 and 2. They are made of metal. [from "Steel Traps", by A. R. (Arthur Robert) Harding. Published by A. R. Harding Publishing Co. Columbus, Ohio; Copyright 1907]. "A lighter grade of stock is used in manufacturing these traps so that they can be made somewhat cheaper than the Newhouse and although not as strong, they are a good reliable trap. The Nos. 2, 3 and 4 are all double spring and made for fox, otter and beaver and while trappers catch large numbers of these animals in Victor traps, yet the more experienced ones prefer the Newhouse traps even at the advanced price".

Taxidermied Otter

Taxidermied Otter

Description:

This is a taxidermic otter that has been mounted on a piece of wood with leaves decorating it. It is perched on the wood with one paw raised and it's tail curved around it. . The taxidermied animals were picked up from the Pemberton Secondary School and we later found out that the specimens were from the Coast Outdoor Mountain School which closed in 1995. These animals were originally from the Pemberton area and were taken to Squamish after the Outdoor School closed. Kirby Young, who used to teach in Pemberton, recognized them and organized their return.
