Two Skulls Are Better Than None

February 5th, 2013 · 3 Comments

Two cow, excuse me, steer skulls on display in a Jonestown, Texas bedroom.  The fire extinguisher next to the bed is quite handy when things get too hot.

King of the Jungle

January 30th, 2013 · 11 Comments

A few days ago, we posted a photo of a taxidermy hoard, with a polar bear and dozens of dead animals.

We have two more photos to share, thanks to Cory Chalmers of 1-800-Hoarders.com.  For anyone who’s seen the Hoarders TV show (airing on Monday nights on A&E TV; season finale this Monday, February 4th), you’ll recognize Cory as their clean-out expert.  Cory runs his own clean-up service Steri-Clean Inc. (aka 1-800-Hoarders).

At a recent cleaning job, Cory was surprised to see this in the bathroom.

He also saw this hoard of dead animals in another room.  The owner put a crown on the lion; King of the Jungle.  And the owner is now officially King of the Idiots.

Overkill, Literally

January 27th, 2013 · 18 Comments

Sure to tick off PETA, for sure.  Dozens of killed and stuffed animals in a Cave Creek, Arizona home, none of which seem to be part of regulated population control.  The photo’s caption reads, “Trophy Room.”  Trophy for what?  Biggest animal killer?  The dead polar bear is sure to upset some buyers.  They might tell the seller to get stuffed.  [click on photo to expand]  Thank you, Lori, for sending us this disturbing photo.

Howling Success

The coyote is howling for its owner to clear out the visual clutter before selling.  Notice the Christmas tree on the left side.  From an Apache Junction, Arizona home.

Halloween!  The house went up for sale September 14th.  That meant the Christmas tree and Halloween decorations were up September 14th.

Flyswatters on display are never a good idea when selling.  Tells the buyers they have a constant pest problem.  Probably feeding on the dead deer and pheasant.
