Stuffed Trigger to be sold at auction

Country cowboy and singer Roy Rogers had his trusty equine sidekick Trigger stuffed when the animal died in 1965.

A taxidermist was commissioned to mount the animal in a rearing position.

Now, the creature is to be sold off next month (14-15Jul10) during a weekend clear-out at the former Roy Rogers and Dale Evans Museum, which closed last year (09).

Christie’s experts will oversea the sale of 300 items in association with High Noon Western Americana.

Trigger is expected to go under the hammer for between $100,000 and $200,000 (£66,600 to £133,300).
