Weird Photo Wednesday top ten, early 2014 edition

Is the Denver Public Library promoting bestiality? Not exactly -- although there are plenty of beasts featured in the pics below, culled from the DPL's amazing digital collection and regularly shared under the banner Weird Photo Wednesday. We first highlighted Weird Photo Wednesday in an August 2013 post. But thanks to Western History & Genealogy department senior librarian James Rogers, there's been plenty more weirdness since then, as those who've liked the Western History Department's Facebook page know full well. Count down our latest top ten below.
