It's not every day you see a monkey riding a goat...
No one knows why taxidermist Walter Potter felt that a monkey riding a goat would make a good exhibit.
I was also concerned to discover, when researching this piece, that a description of the monkey said there were rumours that it had been, and I quote, "bothered with".
Quite how much more "bothered with" you can be after you've been stuffed, is a little difficult to imagine.
For more of the story see next post, and see the old bbc story here
It's not news, I just recently recommended someone should see these pieces on a visit to Cornwall, as of course anyone would, only to find they had gone.
