This is my hobby, in it's raw state.
It is not beautiful, it is not happy. It is in fact quite depressing when I find animals (especially domestic) merely dumped along the road like trash among the real garbage. Dump roads are where I find 80% of my skeletons.
I know of at least 12 dead domestic dogs along a single small dump road near my Mom's house. Granted some of these were feral, but it's still a sad sight. Not to mention all of the cows, goats, and even horses.
This is a big reason why I do what I do. I want to rescue at least a part of an animal from rotting among trash, which is the last place any animal deserves to be.
I take the animal, and clean up it's bones to either be used in my art or simply displayed to be given a fully respected afterlife, which every creature deserves.
Be it a dog, fish, snake, bird, rodent, or human. We are all animals, all equal. And we all deserve respect.
