These taxidermy displays by artist Brandon Vickerds will put any passerby in a state of horror and disbelief.

The ‘Passenger’ (rodent display) and ‘Passenger II’ (chick display) are taxidermy displays that feature several stuffed animals as the faces of several humanized sculptures. The sculptures are made of wire and clothed just like a person. The displays feature ducklings, raccoons, skunks and squirrels. The morbid exhibitions were placed in busy areas in Montreal, QC and Hamilton, ON. Vickerds' intention for placing these taxidermy displays was to "to insert an anomaly into the viewer’s experience of the everyday."

It's not every day that people come across an art display compromised of dead baby ducks and raccoons at the street.
