Banksyis taking over New York in a big way this month, by creating and sharing a new piece on his Instagram each day in the month of October. Today's piece, "The Siren of the Lambs," similar to his "Mobile Waterfall" truck, is traveling around New York through the end of the month (it's in Meatpacking right now) and reminds us of the video he recently released of rebel terrorists abusing Dumbo the elephant and his 2008 New York exhibition, Village Pet Store and Charcoal Grill

He captioned the Instagram with:

"The Sirens of the Lambs. A slaughterhouse delivery truck touring the meatpacking district and then citywide for the next two weeks."

Shortly before, he tweeted:

The only good human being is a dead one #YOLO

Gothamist found the video below, showing the truck driving around New York with squealing animals.

At the bottom of the post he did on his website to share "The Sirens of the Lambs," he left this hilarious small text and image:

"*Please note: If you're the person who stuck a tracking device on the garden truck you're now following a car service in Queens."
