Many firm / favourites are to be stuffed and it is probable that they will / to be placed in the Natural History Museum. PRINCE, one of the / favourite lions at the Regent´s Park zoo, has now been stuffed / and it is expected that MOK, the famous Gorilla who died last / week, will be preserved in the same way. / O.P.S. PRINCE gets a brush after being stuffed at a London / taxidermist, in readiness for his proposed removal / to the Museum.[...]"
