The Michigan-MSU finish is even more shocking in dead chipmunk form

Wednesday October 28th, 2015

Remember the guy who made a taxidermy version of the Michigan-Michigan State rivarlry this summer? He’s done it again, this time recreating the dramatic finish to this month’s Wolverines-Spartans game—with dead chipmunks, of course. 

Lansing taxidermist Nick Saade’s latest creation uses dead rodents to create the scene in the Big House on Oct. 17, when MSU’s Jaeln Watts-Jackson returned a fumble for the game-winning score as time expired.

Saade’s previous morbid diorama was eventually purchased by a Michigan grad from New Jersey for $1,500. Maybe he’ll fetch a higher price for this more dramatic one.
