Happened to stumble upon your comment, you've got taxidermy all wrong.
Taxidermists (the good ones / the majority) don't kill the animal, they never do and are against it.
They preserve already dead animals, usually ones that have died of natural causes/have been tossed away.
the reason they do it is to give "Life" back to the animals which have been poached but the skin/animal was ruined(aka, the poachers toss it away) or the animal was hit by a car, etc, it's a type of art and I find it quite beautiful.
In fact, without taxidermy, a lot of the long-gone extinct species of animals, wouldn't be in museums for us to look at, study and admire.
They sometimes sell the fixed skin or mount after for others(usually taxidermists) to admire at also, many of these people do respect the animals life, and thus they have it in the first place.
Not everyone has to agree on taxidermy as many find it a bit odd, but in no way does taxidermy hurt animals or their populations.
EDIT; did js person does kill the animals she taxidermies, which i strongly disagree with and find gross, if you were commenting because of that, feel free to ignore this post!
