Who is taxidermy humiliating to? Animals don't have a sense of shame over their bodies being used as objects once they no longer occupy those bodies. imo no one owns their bodies after their brain has died. So it's ok to use their bodies as props/objects. I mean, I think the only reason anyone's body should belong to them is bc their body is a vessel for their brain (where THEY really reside). So once the brain is dead, I see no reason for why that body should still belong to the past owner.
