Hairy heads on the railroad

It is amazing what you can find accidentally on the internet. This photo is from the archives at a university and shows the taxidermy department at Kansas Pacific Railway. The stuffed buffalo heads where apparently used for advertising. Times were different back then. I wonder if this was the only railroad that had a taxidermy department. (I better ask PP and BV, they know everything important about railroads, or they can find out if they don't know.)
