    Hi everyone.

    I seem to remember that PA mentioned that he removed a diorama at the Carnegie Museum with bighorn sheep.


    I have attached a picture of the diorama.

    This is the website I got the picture from.

    Greetings garjack, whoever you are.
    I was tasked with removing the specimens from this diorama as because of the infill within the museum, one diorama needed to be removed to tie the new space into the former "outside of the building". I actually thought the male sheep on the right was a better mount than the center specimen. Evidently my memory isn't what it should be as the picture shows that the bighorn is definitely male.

    I have unfortunately been involved in removing specimens from four dioramas, three which would have been worth saving, and then a number of smaller cases. The decision was always made by some above my pay grade.

    John Phillips was an amazing person who was very instrumental in many important Pennsylvania initiatives. If you read the website you listed, open up the music from another website https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FKd21tYYDfo
