Help! rabbit skin smells

Submitted by Alice on 09/05/2002. ( ) 64.12.96.203

I skinned a rabbit and washed the skin, but my forgetful self forgot about it for twenty for hours and now it smells! I put salt on it and spread it out flesh side up to try and save it.
should i put borax or dry preserve on it?
i dont want to mount it, i just want a skin to lay on my book shelf (i havent done many mammals so forgive me for my stupidity)

You can try to wash it and put it in some alum and salt water, however in this heat, you might want to pitch it and start over.
