We found Gary on the interstate on our way back from our first trip to the Greater Pine Bluff Wildlife Refuge. He way lying on his side a few miles down from ‘Pine Bluff Gas and Gifts,’ which is believed to be his store of origin. He was quite surprised when we picked him up with bare hands. We explained that he, unlike some of also-immobile friends, was a ‘stuffed’ rather than a ‘living’ (or formerly-living) animal. This distinction was at first quite difficult for him to comprehend, but he has come to embrace his stuffed identity.
