Beware what you take aim at when hunting in Indiana. CBS news reports that the authorities there have deployed robo-wildlife to trap the wily poacher.
Indiana State Conservation Officer Gene Davis said: “[The decoy] is gaining popularity because it’s actually being shot more. The people that are hunting that are seeing it they’re just dumfounded by it. They’re thinking a deer is standing along the road, they’ll get out and take a shot at it.”
I wonder if you are also “subject to a fine and criminal charges” if you run over the deer.
It just jumped out into the road, I swear!
Next, the authorities plan to use a combination of robotic animals and spy rocks to covertly enter hi-risk zones, such as the militant-separatist compounds.
