SANFORD, Maine (NEWS CENTER) — Ron Paquet is a well-known taxidermist in Sanford, who runs a shop called All Seasons Taxidermy. He does the usual deer, moose and bear mounts for hunters from around the region.
But he also does novelty items and pets.
The novelties might be various smaller animals such as squirrels dressed like anything from paddlers to Santa Claus and even Bill Belichick.
However, increasingly, people are bringing pets to be preserved forever. Ron has a small cryogenics system which enables him to preserve the animals in a very life-like manner.
With just one week remaining in deer season, this is a very busy time for taxidermists.
