PRATTVILLE, Ala. (AP) - Bear, elk, reptiles, whitetail deer, fish, eagles, cougars and wild pigs - Shane Spickard and Karen Sharp have been cleaning them all during the past couple of nights in Prattville.

Their jobs are part of the ongoing effort to spruce up the 652 taxidermy mounts displayed inside Springfield, Missouri-based Bass Pro Shops.

The cleaning has included a boom hoist, brushes, buckets of warm water, rags and several cans of lemon Pledge.

And what a menagerie it is, everything from an almost 11-foot-tall Kodiak bear displayed as you walk in the door to wood ducks, suspended by wires from the cavernous ceiling of the 140,000 square feet mega-store.

North American fish, fowl, mammals and reptiles are represented in the lineup.
