Less than a month after the bear showed up, it was temporarily moved to allow for artwork to be hung on the wall behind it. Mounting the heads of a trophy elk and a bison Zinke has named "Rosie" proved onerous. First, a delay in transporting them from his old congressional office left Zinke "not extremely happy," as Nassar put it. Once the heads arrived at Interior, an assistant apparently suggested putting them in a cabinet or display case, but Zinke was "not keen on that idea," according to Nassar, insisting they be mounted on the wall. Employees then tried to outfit the heads with D-rings in a final "attempt to preserve the historic woodwork," but the bison proved "too top heavy," wrote Diana Ziegler, director of the Interior Museum. The heads were ultimately installed directly into the wall. In late March came the arrival of a stuffed bobcat, a piece from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's collection. "To end the week on a somewhat light note, the 'bobcat has landed'.," Nassar joked the Friday the stuffed animal was delivered. "Luckily, the Secretary decided to not hang it on a wall and he said the taxidermy journey is done. Then as I was leaving, I was told a puma may be showing up so maybe the journey is only over for this week."
