Depending on how sensitive you are to cute little animal heads stuck on vases, you may or may not want to click on the second link.

okay, the fingerpuppets are just wrong.

I think this quote from the article disturbed me most of all:

"I have tried to get her to try to work with larger animals, like dogs."

The finger puppet picture is pretty creepy though.

A lot of those cross the line for me between "making use of the animal" and "desecrating the corpse of the animal". I really don't get the cat/rabbit heads on vases series.

I don't understand why she can't use animals that are already dead. There's plenty of freshly dead mice at university labs, for example.

I would think you could also do a lot in terms of simulating that (with fake animals or photoshop or something).

I think I'd still see it as somewhat impolite to the animal even if she were using dead mice from labs.

I'm fine with killing animals for a useful purpose (food, etc.) especially if they are treated well (although I don't do as much as I should to make sure I only support places that do) but I'm not as fond of killing them for sport (unless they actually have a fighting chance against the hunters) or for one person's artistic sensibilities.

I DON'T even want to know.
