The firm Naturexpo in Kristiansand in Southern Norway focuses on a somewhat unusual niche: Full-size stuffed moose. Now they sell a whole herd on Norwegian eBay, Finn.no.

Under the “Art” category on Finn.no moose in all sizes are lined up, including moose calves.

– I do not think it makes sense to sell these under categories such as “Ornaments” or “Collectibles”, so it had to be “Art”, says Attraction Manager, Jarle Thorkildsen to Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation, NRK.

He has no idea who could be potential buyers.

Translated excerpt from one of the stuffed moose ads:
