Albino coon

Mark - 15-12-2018 at 08:09 PM

Caught an albino coon today. Pink paws, nose, ears, almost a light cinnamon color on back of neck. Need to wash really good but not sure what to use. Belly is off white fur, back is off white except for neck. I cannot get pictures to upload from my phone.

What should I use to wash the fur?

Thank you,

I'd try some borax.

Depends on what you plan to do with it. If you're going to keep it don't worry about it, anything will come out during tanning, if you're going to sell it just throw it in the freezer whole, let whoever buys it worry about it, just don't skin it and stretch it if you plan to sell it, you will cost yourself a lot of money if you do!

If I do keep it I will let the tanning take care of it. I did not realize that, thank you Keith. I did dunk it in the spring house to wash out mud from rain last night. Its drying on newspapers now in front of fan.
I doubt I'll keep it that stuff doesn't interest me. I don't have anything mounted.
