Stuffed Critters in California Bar for 50 Years Confiscated

A stuffed wolverine and red-tailed hawk have been removed from a bar in California’s El Dorado County, some 50 years after the animals were first put on display, an employee told FoxNews.com.

An official from the California Department of Fish and Game, after receiving a tip, removed the animals on Tuesday from the Georgetown Hotel and Saloon in Georgetown, bartender Anthony Fox said.

“They had been in a week before on a report that the two roosters on the wall were turkey vultures or California condors,” Fox said. “Then he noticed the wolverine.”

The establishment, which opened in 1896, had both animals on display for several decades, Fox said, adding that the stuffed wolverine has adorned the bar’s wall for half a century.

  • Who gets roosters confused with turkey vultures or a bird that has a 9 ft wing span? Also pointless to remove stuffed animals that had been on the wall for 50 years. Won't they just destroy them?

    Where insanity isn't a disease, it's their preferred way of life.
    Every Conservative thinking person should leave, and then watch Lala-land self destruct.

  • our tax dollars at work, apparently CA officials aren't worried about our fuckin deficit, more worried about animals that have been dead for over 50 years.

    yes worry about endagered animals who are already dead and stuff, rather than worry about state rotting away.....it makes perfect sense

  • Hmmm? Without knowing the true source of where these mounts came from I have to say the state's decision is one of haste and without merit. There are alot of mounts out there that are pretty dated and could have easily come from a roadside kill that was legally tagged by wildlife officials and then stuffed legally as well. These sort of mounts are usually passed down from person to person for years simply for the nostalgia that they possess. Unless the state can prove that these particular mount More..

      Nailed it. I lived there for 40 years.California is America's most beautiful state,but leads the world in it's political correctness and Knee Jerk liberal politics.

  • I think the answer should lie in if these creatures were illegally killed at the time. If it was legal to kill them at that time, then this shouldnt be an issue.

  • California state officials are truly lacking in common sense.

    Now if it is the case where they are absolutely unable to apply common sense, why are we paying all these bungling shitheads instead of replacing them with algorithms?

  • Fuck California fish and game.... They have provably killed more fish and game then they will ever protect. And their fuck ups are getting harder and harder to search. The worst part about it is there is NO account ability....

    Just one small example...

    In the 1980s an employee of the California Department of Fish & Game privately farming abalone in California imported abalone, H midae, from South Africa and failed to quarantine the foreign species. This introduced a parasite of the shell c More..
