    Alright I was searching for hedgehog stuff just to see what came up on Ebay. And i came across a frozen damn hedgehog.

    That thing looks horrible. It looks like it died in great pain or something. Makes me feel bad for the poor little thing. But then I look at the persons other items and they have a damn roadkill rabbit! WTF is that??

    Sleedorz - Satanic rites! I seriously doubt if ebay notices they will be left alone.

    Backcountry - Ahhh, Stem Cell Research..... the quandry of letting diseased people die VS killing babies to save them, where's the balance?

    I could understand if they were stuffed, but it seems they are just frozen waiting to be stuffed. Why would anyone stuff roadkill anyway? I am looking at Ruby right now and she always looks cute even when she is biting you, that frozen hog is nasty. I thought about buying it for the quills(I collect them) but thats just not right. Besides I can wait till Ruby sheds enough for me to make something out of.

    Lots of people pick up fresh road kill to practice there taxidermy skills on. Its free and the animal is already dead. I dont think that they should be sold on ebay but i dont see a problem with somebody picking up a road kill or two to practice on..Its better then somebody going out an shooting something with a spot light out of season.

    Just think of it like this you just shot a huge 12pt white tail or a huge bull elk and decide to have it mounted dont you want the person doing the work to do a perfect job. This is just a way for them to perfect there skill and technique.
