Ricardo Solis, an artist working in Guadalajara, Mexico... says a team of highly intelligent, "mini-me" creatures got itself a roll of black ribbon. Using giant scissors, the mini-me's cut themselves long slivers, which, dropped from a blimp, they pasted on a horse.

Bharal or Blue Sheep - Ovis nahoor [now Pseudois nayaur]
Bharals, also called naur in their native Himalayas, are a large (35-75 kg) sheep, and aside from the dwarf blue sheep (Pseudois schaeferi), which is endangered, are all relatively prevalent in their territory.
However, similar to the mountain chinchilla, their population is still monitored, because they’re the primary food source for one of the critically-endangered snow leopard populations - any change in their population can lead to snow leopards turning to livestock in the region (leading to poaching) and population decline.
