    He could have been an alpha pack leader since he's much of a darker color but he sure is beautiful

    The color is unusual around here. That's why we got it mounted.

    Seriously beautiful creature. I've never seen one that dark either. Did your Taxidermist have anything to say about it?

    Quote:Taxidermist had never seen one. Most of the ones we have locally are a much lighter grey.
