Chillingham Park Cow

Chillingham Park Cow

The Great North Museum in Newcastle upon Tyne has lots of exhibits about the natural world. Some come from far away and others are more local to the Museum. We sent a group to look around and asked them to choose one object to investigate. They chose a stuffed Chillingham Park Cow from the Natural Northumbria collection.

When they interviewed Keeper of Biology, Dan Gordon they found out it was more remarkable than they first thought and got some gory details about taxidermy.
