I’m surprised that the lions haven’t figured out ambushing a cow isn’t necessary.
Hmm, maybe this would improve social distancing in the grocery store?
Oh my, that is hilarious! It is kind of hard to believe that the predators fall for that??
Hey, it’s been working for moths for eons!
I wonder if it could be used on sheep where bears and other predators are a problem such as near Yellowstone. With big googly eyes on their butts the bear might go away shaking their head and never come back.
I paint eyeballs on my arse to keep predators away too. Works for me.
Seems like a small sample, but this concept has worked in nature forever.
Another of those ‘can’t hurt’ solutions and the cows don’t mind.
Saw this growing up in Africa in the 70’s…
Not very often. I assume when there had been a problem in the area. At the time, I guess we just thought it was for entertainment of passing traffic.
lions be like “don’t eat deformed elephant, might be sickly”
It can work on all sorts of predators. I recall some folk had a deer tamed to the point that they were able to paint COWin big white letters for hunting season.
Fun fact… did you know you can tell wind direction by looking at cows in fields?
We used it when planning to land out off-airport.
@eflyguy, I had no idea of the cow thing, that never came up in my flight training.
Now, the question is, does the new MS Flight Simulator simulate this?
It’s not in the FARs…
Cows face downwind and horses face upwind.
But recent research indicates cows align themselves more frequently to the N/S magnetic field lines.
