Hear Me Roar!
Art has always been used to make people think about a variety of issues, from un-subtle propaganda posters to great literary novels that make us see the world through the eyes of people very different from us. Somewhere in between those extremes lies Neozoon, a European collective of street artists that has decided to use discarded fur coats to make a point about how we related to and treat animals. See below for many more photos of their very cool "fur graffitis".

"The fur coat animals force the realization that the pelts were once the skins of living animals, and thus provoke consideration of the public's celebration and simultaneous exploitation of the captive creatures. In Paris, the collective created a flock of fur-coat lambs that innocently meandered its way across city walls toward Parc de la Villette, which was the site of some of the largest slaughterhouses in 19th-century Europe."

Some "re-animated" animals in a cage. These are kinds of robots that move a bit. There's a youtube video of them here.
