A Robot to “Scare and Electrocute” Bears

A Turkish inventor has crafted a robotic scarecrowish, freakish thing that rolls about an area jerking back and forth and sending 25,000 volts of electricity into anybody and anything that gets in its way. It appears to have been specifically designed to scare away bears.

As was commented to me, why not just have a good bear management plan along with a necessary bear hunting season to keep population numbers in check in order that nuisance bear problems be kept to a minimum? And that bear hunting season might just need to include baiting.
