The Vermont Fish and Game Department has announced that it is buying six “robo” turkeys to use in catching would be poachers. The robotic turkeys can bob their heads up and down and fan its tail feathers. It’s also tough enough to sustain an indirect blast from a shotgun.

The six robo-turkeys will be spread out over the state providing one mechanical bird for each of the state’s six management areas. Vermont has also had success in stopping poachers with robotic deer, elk, coyote and others.
