VIDEO: Sarah Palin (and Her Dead Bear) Appear on TLC

04/30/2009 at 07:10 PM EDT

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin shows off her office décor – including a grizzly bear throw! – while taping a segment for TLC's American Chopper.

In a two-minute clip filmed inside her Anchorage office, Orange County Choppers boss Paul Teutul Sr. talks in Thursday night's episode about building a motorcycle to honor Alaska's 50th anniversary while Palin leans back with her arm resting on a bear that was shot by her father, Chuck Heath.

With the bear's mouth agape and hanging off her left shoulder, Palin casually replied, "We'll ride it to the fishing hole," in regard to the commemorative chopper.

"It means so much to the state of Alaska that these guys are building this bike that will honor statehood here," Palin says in the episode, first airing Thursday at 9 p.m.
