 I'd suggest asking Weston Park Museum in Sheffield, I remember they used to have one in a display of native wildlife before the rejig, along with a flat-out hare that looked like it had been smoking something interesting....

Oh. Might have been able to find one to loan but not keep. I've only got skulls myself.   :confused:

Flat out as in laid on its side, not squashed.... :ras: Going back to badgers, I do see quite a few as roadkill in the Peak but they get extremely wiffy very fast so probably not suitable for DIY taxidermy!

I was going to suggest  the man in Llangollen too. Next door to the Bridge End Pub. No prizes for guessing where to look!
