The show chronicles the day-to-day lives of an at-home business (Xtreme Taxidermy) and family (Mr. and Mrs. Ross) in Arkansas who make a living out of freeze-drying pets, more generally known as taxidermy.
"American Stuffers" explores a life and business that, to many, is completely foreign. For most, taxidermy itself is a very touchy subject, and is a topic that animal lovers tend to go back and forth on.
What American Stuffers does well, however, is chronicle the deep bond between animals and humans. In reality television fashion, the show captures individuals who admire their animals so much that they cannot bear to physically part with them, and chronicles the life of a person who (however grisly it may seem) gives them that peace of mind.
Where do you stand in the taxidermy debate? Do you watch "American Stuffers?"
