Many people, myself included, have a deep respect for all forms of life and
the killing of animals as a form of sport quite reprehensible. Some of your
students as well as their parents may also feel this way--so may I suggest a
still life using other, more traditional, objects such as flowers, fruit or
found objects which would provide adequate variety for your drawing lessons.

Best wishes,
Would you be opposed to a skull of an animal who died a natural death? I
have the skull of Bessie, the pet cow of a friend. He is happy my students
draw her. Melissa
