In one of the latest installments of Banksy’s ‘Better Out Than In’ street art show in NY, a slaughterhouse truck has hit the streets of NY carrying a cargo of squealing and crying plush animals.

The display is both playful and disturbing – the plush animals we know from our childhood seem to be crying and squealing because of their pending doom. Banksy’s accompanying phone audioguide, in his usual sarcastic and tongue-in-cheek manner, explains the intent behind the piece: “…I know what you’re thinking, ‘Isn’t it a bit subtle?’ Here, the artist Banksy is making some sort of comment on the casual cruelty of the food industry. Or perhaps something vague and pretentious about the loss of childhood innocence.”

Banksy will be creating works of art around New York through the end of October. He has already created quite a few works worth looking at, which you can find at BanksyNY.com.
