can I rent a moose skull with antlers?

I would like to rent a large moose skull with big antlers, to use as a prop in a photograph to be taken this summer. I live near Boston, and could pick it up and return it if you're within a few hours of where I live. I would take good care of it and pay a reasonable fee.
It should be in good shape and fairly light in color.
Thanks very much,
Jim Kerner

Call the MCZ.

There is a possibility the Museum of Comparitive Zoology Mammal Department would rent/lend you a specimen for a day or so. It is not uncommon for these requests by ad agencies or newspapers to wish to use a specimen for photographic work. Each Museum has their own policy and fees but I would certainly think Harvard would have a number of large male moose skulls, though they might date to Agassiz time.
