Is the art of taxidermy kosher? What about keeping animals that are stuffed in your house? My family has recently become more observant and my brother wanted to get several stuffed animals, fish, etc. but we weren't sure if there was a problem with that.
While this is not direct proof that taxidermy is OK, the upcoming Jewish Museum of Natural history, to be built in Bet Shemesh, plans to use taxidermy mountings. See This article.
