Sorry to hear you got screwed.
I think it is worth repeating, don't get any taxidermy done in Africa. My PH in Namibia warned me before my first trip, saying whatever money you think you will save you will just spend trying to get it fixed in the US. He could make extra $$ going in cahoots with a local taxidermy studio but he is not interested in screwing folks over.
When I lived in Germany my taxidermist ALWAYS had mounts from SA/Namibia in there he was fixing for clients who tried to save a buck (or Euro) but having work done there. They ended paying 2x as much to have it done correctly............
all of the African animals in this picture were mounted in in Namibia. None have needed repair and all are what I shot. The measurements add up on the horns, the stripe pattern on the zebra is the same as do the scars on my kudu's nose. So I think it's worth repeating, take your time and be picky about your taxidermists. There is good and bad everywhere.
