Sounds like they are to far gone to me. But at the World show (1999)
I sat in a fox mounting seminar with Darin Flynn. He had some slippage
(as Foxes do alot)and he dabbed formaldahyde on the spot and it tightens
it up I suppose. But you made a major mistake by not turning the ears
and skinning the feet. you may want a second opinion but I think you are
to late.
