Are These Euthanized Mules Even Educational?
A new display at the American Museum of Agriculture in Lubbock, Texas has brought the subject of taxidermy morality to the public eye — a question that natural history museums regularly face. The AMA found two mules to euthanize and stuff for a 19th century farming display featuring a McCormick reaper.
A number of Care2 Members vocally disapprove of using the mules as taxidermy models now that the original call to action failed to save the mules' lives. Now, an animal rights activist is suing the museum for violating state law by killing livestock for "nefarious purposes." If he wins his case, the mules will belong to the state.
