Battle royale: Animals in the Nova Scotian art scene
But they're both so cute!

Wildlife rules this week in local art news. But just like in the wild, it's a dog eat dog world—a brutal struggle of survival of the fittest when it comes to the art world. Winner take all!

Do you choose Nancy Rose's (adorable) squirrel buddies who unwittingly become photographic subjects? (globalnews.ca) or Bonita Hatcher's "controversial" beaver installation on Barrington (The Globe & Mail).

For the record we posted a photo of the beaver in question to The Coast's Instagram before this great video made the rounds and there was nary a peep. My guess is that everyone was too busy clutching their pearls to type "OMG GROSS SIMULATED LADY PARTS".
