‘The badger’s paws have got nails through them so some
references to badger culling are there. There are lots of
interpretations to be read through the work – the sticking
together of the badger’s mouth, and the unusualness of the fox.’

Although she handled a number of stuffed animals that had
been killed more brutally, Dracup decided not to include
them in her exhibition Re: Collections:

‘I didn’t want to go down the grotesque route, or the caricature route. There was one red squirrel in the collection that was reminiscent of TV character Tufty, which I couldn’t use. There’s a tension within the stillness of the photographs.’
