Referring to my comment in a recent column about “stuffed animals” at Rancho Cucamonga’s Bass Pro Shops, longtime reader Mel Leets writes:
“Animals are now mounted on mannequins using the hot glue system to tailor-fit the skin to the type of animal mannequin. About the only thing they stuff anymore are turkeys.”
Correction noted by this turkey.
(Always nice to hear from Mel, by the way. He’s been commenting on my columns longer than just about anybody.)
