A safari-themed auction is drawing a lot of attention to the eastern Nebraska city of Columbus this weekend.
Dozens of stuffed exotic animals - from giraffes and lions to a mounted hyena and baboon - from late Columbus businessman Chuck Sand's collection will be among the items auctioned Sunday at Platte County Agricultural Park.
Grubaugh Auction Service tells the Columbus Telegram that the collection includes about 125 items, including hides and skulls.
Sand, who died in 2012 at the age of 69, built his Platte County home with 14-foot ceilings specifically to display his trophies from a lifetime of hunting trips to Africa, Europe, Mexico, Canada and across the U.S. Many of the taxidermy animals - including a full-size elephant head - were displayed in the house.
