Hello all, I am a beginner to taxidermy, never even touched it in my life. I work at the local Goodwill in the warehouse and this came through today in a box of donations and I picked it up for $6.00. I just thought it would be a neat piece to have on display even if it is in rough shape and missing some pieces. 1. What type of animal is it? 2. What is the metal wire in the back? 3. It appears to be in very rough shape, I am going to glue the jaw portion back together the best I can, Is this even worth fixing? 4. What procedure should I use to clean/disinfect/soak it? There appears to be "matter" in a lot of the small crevices and inside the center of the skull.... no idea what it is! Thanks guys! Here are a bunch of pictures.
