To Protect African Cows From Lions – Paint Eyes On Their Butts

The researchers stamped painted eyes onto one-third of a herd of 62 cattle, making sure the eyes were large, easily visible and “potentially intimidating”. While three unpainted cows were killed by lions, all the painted cows survived to graze another day.

Potentially intimidating? I wouldn’t go that far.
