A taxidermied anteater, of all things, is at the center of a scandal plaguing a global wildlife photography competition.
The Natural History Museum in London announced Friday that it has disqualified a winning photo from its 2017 Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition. The image, titled "The night raider" by photographer Marcio Cabral, purports to show an anteater in Emas National Park in Brazil.
But upon further inspection, the museum says it's now convinced that the animal in the photo is actually just a stuffed version taken from the park's visitor center. Whoops!
