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

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.
