Our beginning...

Taxidermy is an ancient custom that has its origins in the preservation of skins, horns, and skulls as hunting trophies. In the eighteenth century, the introduction of chemical poisons to protect skins and leathers from insects led to the accumulation of large collections of birds and mammals by royalty, and private collectors who used them for parlor ornaments and trophies of the chase.

Today there are laws to prohibit animals from being stuffed, other than by licensed institutions like museums, which preserve them for educational purposes. Only those animals, including birds, which can be legally hunted, may be preserved ~ Advanced Taxidermy

Interesting Thought!

Hunting is also a shooting sport, and indeed shooting live pheasants was an Olympic event (albeit only once, in 1900).
