January 21st is officially Squirrel Appreciation Day. In the basement of the Cress Funeral Home in Madison, Wisconsin, owner Sam Sanfillippo has a collection of taxidermy, specifically squirrel dioramas. We’ve seen this before on the blog. Dead animals arranged in ridiculous situations, like drinking at a bar or visiting a topless girlie show. I say do what makes you happy. I mean a funeral home is already full of dead things, so why not include a bit more?
There are also hundreds of other taxidermy including fish, raccoons, and at least a couple of badgers at Sam’s place. If you’d like to visit, just contact Cress Funeral home at 608-238-8406 to make an appointment (as long as there isn’t a funeral going on, Sam loves visitors).
