One less cougar in Arizona.  We’re all grateful for that!  They used the cougar’s blood to stain the lampshade!

Overkill

March 8th, 2015 · 2 Comments

A bit over the top at a Camas, Washington home.  Of course, if you have lots of money, you can buy anything.  And it shows.

The bar is open.  The fish are dead.  Does this spawn any interest?  Is that a railroad track on the right?

There is a railroad track at the top of this photo.  The track circles the room.  More statues.

Bobcat gone bad.  Almost qualifies to be featured on the Crappy Taxidermy blog.

This one looks 100% better.  But perhaps it could be removed when selling.

Stuffed & Stuffed

Thank you, Rachel, for finding these photos.  I think we’re just as shocked as you are.

Stuffed animals on display.  Because that’s how you sell a house.  Aim for a specific type of buyer.  Alienate the others.

Never fear.  There’s more taxidermy!

The rest of the house is filled with dusty collectibles.

There’s a dog on the black chair.  Wanna bet he ends up stuffed and mounted some day?

Artwork with nudity.  Who wants to see that when eating?  Not appropriate when selling.

And another view of the nudity.  It’s like a museum.

Too bad the stainless steel appliances are ignored by visual distractions.

Nine Fireplaces

Cluttered fireplace.  We get to check off a lot of categories with this photo:  clutter, family photos, fake plants, taxidermy, lighting, dirt/dust, stuffed animal, staging.  Aside from the can of bug spray, can we burn everything else in the fireplace?
