In an attempt to thwart wild animals from feasting on their crops, farmers in Japan have turned to a rather monstrous-looking creation: a robot wolf!
The frightening machine, which is approximately the same size as an actual wolf, sports glowing red eyes, menacing faux fangs, and emits a variety of sounds including a growl, a gunshot, and a human voice.
And, best of all, it boasts a truly awesome moniker: 'Super Monster Wolf.'
Developed by a robotics company and being tested at an agricultural cooperative this summer, the concept has proven to be successful so far as it has seemingly kept boars, deer, and even birds away from the site.
The company behind the robotic wolf hopes to being selling the machine later this year for around $2,000 dollars.
