Stuffed animals and statues

Q 1: We know that Islam has forbidden having statues and embodied pictures of humans and animals, and that which has a shadow, for a perfect wisdom represented in preventing people from trying to match the creation of Allah, and blocking the way to worshipping idols and animals. This ruling also includes whatever is carved from stones, wood, or formed in moulds prepared for that purpose.However, if a person has a tiger, zebra or a ram leather, stuffs it with straw or cotton, makes a head and limbs of the same leather color for it, then puts it at the entrance of the house or in the living rooms for decoration, would this be permissible or not in case it is not carved, molded or kept for honoring purposes?

A: It is impermissible to use what is mentioned as it resembles a statue, and also because it is useless.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
