Taxidermied Cougar

Description:

This is a taxidermic/stuffed cougar. It's fur has been bleached from the sun after being set by a window by previous owners. There is a kink near the end of it's tail and it is laying down with it's front paws extended out and it's hind legs to the side. 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.
