I am a working member of MART, the Minnesota Association of Rogue Taxidermists, and follow their ethical guidelines. None of the animals used to make new taxidermy pieces were killed for the purpose of art. They are either repurposed vintage pieces or utilized roadkill, discarded livestock, destroyed nuisance animals, casualties of the pet trade, and donated animals that died of natural causes.
