Salting a zebra?

Discussion in 'Tanning' started by mike welch, Apr 3, 2008.

  1. I have a friend that had two zebras, we had a bad storm here and they were struck by Lightning and died. I went the next day and skinned them out for him ,and put them in my freezer for 2 months . I took them out and thawed them and put them in my garage on a tilt trailer and salted them heavily, My problem or question is they have been in salt for 5 days and I have re-salted them until all drainage has stopped, and have hung them up over saw horses to dry, for another 5 days Thing is they don't seem to be drying and mane on one has slipped. Have I done something wrong? I fleshed them completely and put lots of salt on them. skin is a purplish grey color. Thanks for any advice. Mike
