It seems like every other week, or day, there is another reported story of wildlife being illegally taken in Montana. Despite the open landscape and abundant wildlife, there are rules to our wild-west civilization. Our Fish Wildlife & Parks department have their hands full preventing, and investigating these crimes. Other states struggle with some of the same issues and have come up with a clever way to bust poachers: ROBOT DEER!
States like Florida and Indiana have created a life-like deer made of foam core with a real deer pelt covering it. And the most realistic features are its robotic moving head and reflective eyes! The head is operated by a state employee with a remote hiding in the woods. Check out this video from Indiana’s Department of Natural Resources:
