Brownsburg Taxidermist Accused of Stuffing Pockets, Not Hides

Indiana Conservation Officers say Kevin McGrotty, owner of Brownsburg Taxidermy, took orders--and money--from clients, but never did the work.

HENDRICKS COUNTY, Ind. -- A handful of Hoosier hunters paid a Brownsburg man to do their taxidermy work, but the only things getting stuffed were the man's pockets.

Indiana Conservation Officers say Kevin McGrotty, owner of Brownsburg Taxidermy, fleeced 16 clients out of more than $4,000.

McGrotty's clients say he promised to do their taxidermy work, collected their money (and their prized hides, mounts, and antlers) and never returned a finished product.

McGrotty was arrested Tuesday following an 18-month investigation by the Indiana Department of Natural Resources. 

The Brownsburg man is charged with 16 counts of Theft and one count of Corrupt Business Practices.

McGrotty's taxidermy license has been revoked.
