You can find a lot of strange things on the internet, but a dead cat turned into a remote-control flying helicopter may be the strangest yet. The cat helicopter was conceived by Dutch artist Bart Jansen, was the first taxidermy drone he created. Turns out it was Jansen’s own cat who was killed by a car in 2012, so Jansen “decided to pay tribute to his lost life by giving him a new one. An electronic one. It would allow him to continue partaking in his favorite activity: bird stalking.”
After the dead cat drone, Bart Jensen proceeded to create an ostrich copter, “I thought it was really funny to make fly a bird that can’t fly,” he told people who tried to understand WHY. Geez, there’s that European humour for you.
Obviously, the next logic step was to create a dead rat drone:
Finally, Bart Jansen turned a taxidermy shark into a SharkJet…
