Unless you've been living in a yurt on the plains of Inner Mongolia for the last 72 years, you've seen The Wizard of Oz. Multiple times.
And I'm sure you remember this iconic exchange:
Dorothy: Do you suppose we'll meet any wild animals?
Tin Woodsman: Mm, we might.
Scarecrow: Animals that eat... s-traw?
Tin Woodsman: Some, but mostly lions, and tigers, and bears.
Scarecrow: And tigers?
Tin Woodsman: And bears.
Dorothy: Lions, and tigers, and bears! Oh, my!
I don't usually get startled when showing houses. But as I turned a corner in a mostly vacant house yesterday, I was greeted by this:
Yes, that is a real lion skin run in the empty living room. Real teeth and real claws still on the paws.
Now it's been a while since I have done any "dead animals in your home" posts. So many of the dead animals are repetitive, like deer heads.
But this one was a new one for me! And in the other corner of the empty living room?
Yes. A bear. Or, more accurately, a folded bear skin. Also real. The only think this house was missing was a tiger. But it did have a zebra skin and a stuffed eland head in the family room!
Around these parts, your dead animals are not selling points! They're highly personal items that can be quite controversial and should be put away while trying to sell your home!
