i-cows: can intimidating eye patterns painted onto cows reduce lion attacks?
View comment
Brilliant use of predator-prey relationships and behaviors. I particularly applaud the sustainable, replicable, low-tech approach. I know it's way premature, but, do you have any early thoughts on - habituation (by lions, I mean, although the cows might develop an escalating cosmetic dependency ;-) )? - what strategies lions might adopt to replace the food source and whether any of them might actually increase human/lion conflict? Keep up the hard work and the creative thinking! -- Susanne
