Photos: The Taxidermied, Card-Playing, Gun-Toting Squirrels of Rick Nadeau

Posted By on Wed, Aug 12, 2009 at 9:05 AM

This week's feature story profiles Mitchell, Illinois resident Rick Nadeau and his fascination with taxidermy. But not just any stuffing and mounting. Nadeau's taxidermy trade is in squirrels. Squirrels playing cards. Squirrels holding guns. That sort of thing.

Below is a sampling of Rick's work and photos of the man himself, by Jennifer Silverberg.

Take a gander at the pics and then squirrel away a few minutes to read staff writer Aimee Levitt's story on Nadeau and his "little buddies." You won't want to miss it.

Rick's squirrels have been featured on SpikeTV as a gift for the dad who has everything. It's a safe bet to say he doesn't have this guy on the wall. See more photos here. - PHOTO: JENNIFER SILVERBERG
