Japanese town deploys growling "Monster Wolf" robots to scare away wild bears.

A town in northern Japan has recently been plagued by a plethora of wild bears, roaming around neighborhoods and petrifying residents. In an attempt to prevent attacks, the town of Takikawa has now installed terrifying robotic wolves to howl at the bears and scare them off.

The increase in bear attacks may be due to a shortage of acorns in the wilderness.

The scarecrow-like robots have shaggy bodies, four legs, blond manes and glowing red eyes. If the motion detectors are activated, they move their heads, flash the lights in their eyes and project up to 60 equally-horrifying sounds, including howls.

There have been zero reports of bear encounters since.
