6 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, October 3, 1974 I BILL GROENEN photos Lee knows his stuff Taxidermist Jimmy Lee prepares the wood shavings he will use as a stuffing in a pheasant (lower left) and proudly displays four mallard ducks in the photo next to it. The mallards are stuffed, but the unique display has led many a hunter to cast an envious eye m their direction. The bottom right photo depicts two sharp tail grouse while a skunk is about to object something in the picture above the grouse. A hen mallard takes to the air (upper right) while 10 Hungarian partridge feed in a stubble field above. The birds and skunk are only a fraction of the stuffed wild life on display in the Lee home.
