Scientists are painting eyes on cows’ butts to stop lions getting shotIt's not quite a happy face, but cow butt emojis might become a thing.
Less crazy than it sounds.
Scientists have come up with a solution that will reduce the number of lions being shot by farmers in Africa - painting eyes on the butts of cows.
It sounds a little crazy, but early trials suggest that lions are less likely to attack livestock when they think they’re being watched - and less livestock attacks could help farmers and lions co-exist more peacefully.
Or maybe those lions are art critics, and reject this as being "real art".
At any rate, if this continues to work, it's a breakthrough.
