Returning from our annual vacations to Cape Cod, my Uncle Stewart and Aunt Cheryl used to adorn the hood of their minivan with seaside paraphernalia….generally stuff that was too bulky to fit inside the vehicle itself like driftwood, lobster traps, buoys, etc. This bighorn sheep’s head, replete with sunken eyes and grisly wool, is quite a new dimension of hood ornaments. I guess it kinda makes sense….the SUV is an Isuzu Bighorn, that’s a bighorn sheep that someone shot (they’re wild in parts of NZ)…..but meeting it in the grocery store parking lot was still one of those “you’re not in Kansas anymore” moments.
Morbid is right! We’ve got the tough guy trucks up here that wear moose antlers – but so far I’ve never seen the entire moose head on a truck. Of course, some of these wacky Alaskans might try to shoot at it while it was moving!
