    Perfetto testified McConnell also bragged about selling animal parts, such as hides, horns and bear gallbladders, sometimes using the Internet to communicate with the buyers. Perfetto said he saw more than a dozen sets of goat horns in McConnell's garage.

    This effects everyone, However this is a Rouge Hunter a Poacher...
    The title of this should read " Poacher Busted" Not every taxidermist is a big game hunter.
    I would even question if this person is a member of the taxidermist community NTA?

    I checked a couple of past years NTA membership list and McConnel hasn't been and isn't a NTA member.

    Busy with taxidermy and busy with the ponds and selling fish. As soon as the gas prices dropped I got swamped with taxidermy work! Just came back from a 30 hour round trip road trip to pick up Canadian brookies at an Indiana reservation north of Bayfield, WI. I hope to hatch them myself in the future as the driving is getting old.
