Arkansas taxidermist takes talent to TV show

(AP) - A taxidermist in Romance turned a hobby into a business, and his work preserving dead animals is about to get a wide audience.

Daniel Ross' business Xtreme Taxidermy is to be featured on a reality show on Animal Planet next month.

Ross says he got into taxidermy nine years ago as a way to save money on animals and fish he wanted mounted. It soon turned into a business.

Ross told The Daily Citizen one unique feature of the family business is that it preserves pets. That turned out to be the angle of the TV show, which tells the story of people who bring their dead pets in to be mounted.
