His "Turf Wars" show was met with massive protesting, even though he's proved himself an animal rights activist.

In 2003, Banksy held a warehouse show entitled "Turf Wars," which displayed painted farm animals, including pigs painted as Police officers, sheep painted as concentration camp prisoners, and cows covered in stencils of Andy Warhol's face. While the paint was said to be animal friendly and the show was approved by an inspector from the RSPCA, protesters still picketed against cruelty to animals. One woman even chained herself to the fence of a painted cow.
