Two dead (used to be alive, just like you and me) squirrels were stuffed (had their used-to-be-alive innards removed and replaced with foam or whatever), dressed in little hockey uniforms, and then posed to make it look like they are in the middle of a very legitimate, very alive hockey fight.
This is 100% real, we promise. And we are so sorry.
Even better! They're supposed to represent actual people! The Hershey Bears squirrel is supposed to be Steven Oleksy, while the Lehigh Valley Phantoms player is Derek Mathers. I wonder how those fellas feel about this.
This can be yours for $600.00. Add $12.45 for shipping.
