People for the Ethical Treatment of Stuffed Animals

(Photo via Brian Sibley's blog)

We wrote about Ken Rogowski's creepy yet interesting Bears book back in May. Rogowski's publisher PowerHouse reports, that some have taken umbrage with the "blatant bear brutality"—a link to this local blog shows another photographer's stuffed animals staging a protest. Could this lead to a new activism—for the ethical treatment of (stuffed) animals?

Bears is also on display at Foley Gallery in New York City (547 West 27th Street, 5th Floor; 212.244.9081) until August 21, 2007. To check out images online, visit
