Taking flight for a good cause

According to MrHardKor, around 300,000 geese are killed every year at the Amsterdam Schiphol Airport for safety reasons.  When MrHardKor, an artist and taxidermist by trade, discovered that the geese were being killed and then destroyed, he knew he needed to step in.  Together with a group of like-minded individuals, he created “De Keuken van het Ongewenste Dier” (Kitchen of the Unwanted Animals).  The organization receives the geese from the licensed hunters, cleans them, and then serves them at events in and around Holland.

The following pictures come from one event that the group catered.  It was the opening of an art fair entitled “Bacchus and Soul”, and they served smoked goose.  It was there that MrHardKor hooked himself up to a pair of goose wings and some balloons to serve the geese with style.

Check out the Other Ritual Fun gallery for more photos from the event.

  1. Hey, I knew about the geese being served at a restaurant, but I didn’t see this awesome fellow. I wonder who threw his hooks? :)

  2. Indeed, saw an item on tv about the restaurant, but did not see this guy either. I must say that the open bit on the back of his shirt looks an awful lot like Classic ink & mods’ logo, maybe that’s a hint about who hooked him up?

  3. Good point Ratcaver! I didn’t even notice it, nevertheless love the initiative, no animal that has been killed should just go to waste. The shiphol snackbar should be serving those geese croquettes!

  4. Yep, you’ re right Ratcaver! I made the shirt for the opening of Sharon’s “Classic ink & mods”. Always +1 to support the best shop in town!
