VIDEO: MONSTER WOLF ROBOT IN FIELD TEST TO SCARE INVASIVE WILD BOARS AWAY




The video footage below, which was taken in Kisarazu, Chiba Prefecture, shows a robotic “super monster wolf” that members of the local agricultural cooperative have set up in a paddy to scare wild boars away from their crops.

Measuring about 65 centimetres long and 50 centimetres tall, the robot-wolf emits a 90-decibel growl and flashes red eyes when infrared sensors detect boars nearby. In addition to its satanic eyes, the creature features a realistic fur hide and snarling rubber jaw. The robot will be in the field and tested out until September.

The solar-powered lupine menace has proven so successful at scaring away wild boar from Japanese farms that it’s going into mass production. The robot-wolf can cover distances of up to half a mile and has been used in trails to patrol fields near Kisarazu City.

The Monster Robot Wolf is equipped with infrared sensors that sense the proximity of animals. As the animal moves into the paddy field, the robot activates, the eye turns red, the head turns, reveals itself as a living creature, and sends out 40 different deafening roars.

Have a look at the video below to see the monster robot wolf in action.
