Takikawa City, Hokkaido, Japan, has installed robot wolves to scare away real bears…




Spooked at a sudden increase in sightings of aggressive bears, a town in northern Japan has deployed two robot wolves to keep the interlopers at bay. Residents of Takikawa expressed concern in September when bears were reported roaming the outskirts of the town, in the mountains of Hokkaido Prefecture. Across Japan, sightings of bears are at a five-year high of 13,670 this year and 63 people were mauled in attacks between September and late October, with two people later dying of their injuries, according to national broadcaster NHK.
