Get A Head

There were lots of glazed eyes and blank expressions in the Roundhouse on Wednesday, the last full day of the Legislature. A couple of those eyes belonged to a large mounted head of an oryx.

The Legislative Sportsman's Caucus and Foundation presented the trophy New Mexico School for the Blind and Visually Impaired in Alamogordo, where it will become part of a “Sensory Safari,” a collection and game mounts at the school where children and adults are able to enjoy the state's native wildlife through the sensation of touch. The oryx had been missing from the collection.
