Does anyone recognize this lion

This is definitely a long shot, but I figured I might as well ask. Months ago a friend of mine gave me a few boxes of expired sheet film that she had no use for, and one of those boxes contained 3 sheets of Tri-X that expired in 1985. We had no idea they were already exposed until I used one of them, and there was a photo of a lion's head along with my own exposure. Upon closed inspection, the box was actually labeled 'Lion', along with the photographer's name, which I think was 'Tony Bo', though it was hard to tell due to the pencil having faded quite a bit after 25 years or so.
Anyway, I got the rest of the sheets developed recently, and as you can tell it's actually a stuffed and mounted lion. I was hoping that maybe someone would recognize it as something that once was or is currently in a museum or some other public display. Like I said, a long shot, but you never know.
