ripped red

Need some advice I was turning a red fox and it tore from under the leg up around just to the edge of its back. Do I try to fix ( kind of afraid to turn it back) or leave it ?

Re: ripped red

I have taxidermy needles, because I do a little of it. If you don't just get a nice big curved one if you can. Dollar store has packs of them. I use regular thread. Just don't pull too hard or it will break it when you tie it. Get the heaviest thread you can. If you send it in without sewing it it will be downgraded bad. If you sew it, chances are it won't. I have gotten some good money for sewn ones. I picked a red up off of the road that was torn from it's belly almost to it's chin. I sewed it up and stil got $35 for it last year. It was listed as Slight Damage through NAFA. Atleast I assume it was that one. Only red I sent that had any damage at all last year.

Re: ripped red

Does the color of thread or floss matter? And do you want the skin the butt together or overlap a little bit?
