Robotic Deer Stops Poachers, Rednecks

This image was lost some time after publication.

Indiana police are using a little technology to stop poachers from killing unsuspecting deer. They have begun using motorized decoy deer all across northwest Indiana. The decoy is placed along the road with an officer planted in the woods controlling its motorized head. It has been resulting in arrests of up to five poachers per day. The decoy looks so realistic that most people have to do a double-take. Even if a hunter shoots the decoy he will still be subject to a fine and criminal charges. No word from the robotic deer, but they are expected to strike soon for better wages. Getting shot day in and day out is pretty tough work.
