Bearly there

Jeff Vogtschaller and Duane Barnes hoist and position a 12-foot-tall stuffed polar bear being prepared for display atop the foyer entrance of Birge Hall. The taxidermy specimen, legally hunted and imported by a private citizen many years ago, was donated to the Zoological Museum's permanent collection after being bequeathed to the UW Foundation as a private estate gift.
