A savvy Russian street artist named Renald has been roaming the streets in the city of Petrozavodsk, randomly turning public phone booths into sharks.

Not to be deterred though, the artist is now employing new, stronger paint in an effort to keep his sharks alive. Stats for Predatory Phone Booths Trending: Older & Chilly
