Wildlife Museum, Caribou Crossing, Yukon

I’m not a big fan of taxidermy.  There’s a lot more bad examples than good when it comes to stuffed animals.  I was really surprised, though, by the Wildlife Museum at Caribou Crossing.  We visited the museum as part of a cruise ship excursion in May 2016.  The museum was quite interesting and the taxidermy was some of the best I’ve seen.

From the famous polar and brown bears to the lesser known wood bison and saigo antelope as well as the now extinct woolly mammoth.  The displays are at times beautiful and at other times violent, but always interesting and educational.

My wife says I make stuff up. While that's probably true I'm going to stick to stuff that's mostly true.
