The major of the city of San Juan in Puerto Rico has sent out an unusual Christmas greeting card…featuring some stuffed wildlife in a vicious pose.

The awkward image, posted on the website shows the Santini family and Mayor Jorge Santin in a warm family pose, complete with taxidermied animals in the foreground. Snowflakes on the borders give it that extra Christmas magic.

“May this Christmas light your dream” is the slogan (“Que esta navidad, ilumine tu sueno”) which would be appropriate if your dream is to see lots of exciting leopard attacks in 2012.

The pose took place at San Juan’s Museo de Vida Silvestre, the local world wildlife museum where visitors can take a journey around the world through various ‘biomes’ showing international scenes from nature.

Continuing the theme, here’s some other bizarrely bloodthirsty family images for the season of goodwill.
