Monkeys in India apparently can’t tell a tiger from a dog made to look like a tiger — or at least that is what one farmer claims.
The farmer, identified as Srikanth Gowda, said he has been able to protect his coffee crop from monkeys by painting his pet dog Bulbul with black stripes, an Indian news outlet reports.
“I now take Bulbul to the fields twice a day — in the morning and evening,” Gowda told Asian News International in a report Monday. “I have seen them running away at the sight of the dog. The monkeys now refrain from entering my plantations.”
