    Thanks Kyle, it was all for not just to find out the bird would be pitched in the trash.

    Total Shame, so I took it upon myself to physically bury the bird.

    Thanks for your help.

    ive always wondered about taxedermy on protected wild life.. if one was to find say a bald eagle that recently passed... what would you have to go through to get it stuffed?? i think it would be a great conversation piece, as long as it was LEGALLY obtained..

    Kyle, I wondered about it myself... I didnt want this bird to be killed the way it was let alone be just discarded. I didnt want to have one like this, but I called the taxidermist and they said even with it being hit and killed that I couldnt possess it, they said I would have to deliver it to either the Indiana State Museum or the Childrens Museum and they would use it for educational purposes.

    Everybody was closed for the day, and Shane has a buddy that is a dnr officer and he said that they tell you to just discard it.
