Entering the museum, you are greeted by the smiling lady Agriculture, eager to show you around and answer all your questions. The first thing I will explain is that all the animals and birds of the report is stuffed and not stuffed.

The stuffed animals are healthy and strong, killed in the most brutal way and this is a crime. In contrast, the stuffed animals have died in the wild or in zoos or were old and dying before getting the Municipality for embalming. So, instead of leaving it at the mercy of the sun, rain and mother earth will 'takes her womb, utilized in the best way for our own benefit.
