Carol got it exactly right. What a quirky surprise! They also had a couple more isles of the animals and in the front, a critter getting attacked by a lion. Apparently the owner of the market shot and had them all stuffed and his wife finally said find someplace else to display the stuff.

I actually really like that area I have been there a number of times. The Method Valley has a few quirky surprises. Although it can get pretty warm in the valley in the summer and you have to watch towing there in the early spring and fall as they tend to get early & late snow falls on the northern roads leading in and out.

Last summer we had a very long drive home to California in our brand new 13' Scamp from the Minnesota-based factory. Imagine our surprise when we stopped in a convenience store at a gas station near Rapid City, South Dakota and saw a full-size male lion in the aisle! We were even more surprised when we saw a museum there filled with all manor of wild animal including elephant, zebra, giraffe, rhino, gorilla, monkeys and much more. Do stop by next time you are in Rapid City. Following is an excerpt from the local newspaper. Call of the Wild: Free museum hopes to attract, educate visitors

"Duane Pankratz had two problems.
First, his new convenience store near Interstate 90's Exit 61 had a lot of extra space. A fast-food restaurant had planned to set up in the south 2,500 square feet of the building, but the deal fell through.Second, Pankratz owns a number of taxidermy pieces - African lions, elk, deer, even an alligator - that were stashed away in storage. An avid big-game hunter, Pankratz had amassed a large collection of trophy animals bagged by him and his family over the years.
"The taxidermists complained that I wasn't getting their work out there where they could be seen," he said.
His solution: Call of the Wild, a museum inside La Grand Station convenience store. It's free and open to the public. Ken Nash, who runs the museum, said he will give talks and tours to school children and other groups who want to see the museum. To schedule a visit, call 645-0068."

Pankratz had so many trophy animals that he sent many of them to Cabela's outdoor recreation store. Following is an excerpt from their website. There you can see photos of the store display. http://www.cabelas.com/assets/cms/im...otogallery.swf

"Cabela's Rapid City, South Dakota Retail Store is located southeast of the intersection of E. Mall Drive and Dyess Ave. in Rapid City. In addition to offering quality outdoor merchandise, the 80,000 sq. ft. showroom is an educational and entertainment attraction, featuring a décor of museum-quality animal displays, huge aquariums and trophy animals interacting in realistic re-creations of their natural habitats."
