Thread: Is a dead swan any good for a taxidermist to use on here?

  1. #1

    Is a dead swan any good for a taxidermist to use on here?

    Bit of a strange one this but are there any taxidermists on here that can make use of a swan?

    I was driving round my perm today and found one that had hit some power lines and hadn't been there long. It's near perfect (apart from being dead!!) with just a small mark on the neck and wing where it made contact and I assume it broke its neck. It's currently in my larder as I wanted to find out if it was any use before I placed it in the freezer.

    I would have thought it would be quite rare to get a good one to use but if not I'll take it back and let nature take its course,

    Cheers

    Anyone know if it's ok to keep hold of it? I thought with things like this or owls, birds of prey, etc, you had to write out a declaration saying it was found and not killed by yourself or something like that?

    Cheers
