Authorities say they have searched a North Carolina man's home and recovered stuffed bears, bobcats, foxes and other animals reported stolen from taxidermists in recent years.

Sheriff's deputies in Davidson County say they also recovered a preserved mountain lion, deer heads and coyotes at the home of Terry William Pitt Jr.

The Lexington man, who was initially arrested last month, was charged Tuesday with felony breaking and entering along with other charges. Bond for Pitt was set at $40,000.

The man's attorney wasn't available for comment Wednesday afternoon.

The sheriff's office said the items were reported stolen from four taxidermists in Davidson County in 2009 and 2010. Deputies also say more than 60 racks of deer antlers were recovered during the search.
