Trophy Hunter & Veterinarian
One of the themes of my August, 2015 trip was odd things happening at gas stations. In South Dakota, after fueling up, I entered to use a restroom and found a huge menagerie of stuffed and mounted wildlife, many in fierce poses, like a black bear under attack by a lion, and there was a large variety of species, from an African elephant and lion, to ostrich, bears, raccoons, virtually every type of predator, antelope, big horn sheep and prairie dogs. I learned that the station owner was a veterinarian/trophy hunter, and that by chance he was there that day. I fetched my camera, and though this participant does not want to be identified, he was very open in our interview.
