Our series on German taxidermy continues

From the bowels of Augustusberg Schloss in the former East Germany we are proud to present part zwei in our occasional series on German taxidermy. Today please to enjoy a very dangerous bird whose name I forget. Apparently in olden times feudal German lords would train these birds to peck out the eyes of disobedient peasants. These eyes would then be preserved in aspic and enjoyed by the baron or other noble person at his hunting lodge.

Secondly we present the noble and also dangerous wild boar:
I wouldn't like to come accross him on a dark nacht wandering across a deserted strasse. But I bet his bacon was delicious.

It has come to our attention that all of the native German animals, from the weasel to the boar, are all highly dangerous. If anyone is aware of Deutscher animal that does not pose a serious threat to life an limb, please let us know (and send a picture).
