Farmers in southwestern India are sick of monkeys eating and destroying their crops and one took matters into his own hands.
He used hair dye to put stripes on his dog to make it look like a tiger. He originally put a tiger doll out in the fields, and while that worked for awhile, the monkeys soon lost their fear of the stuffed animal.
Now that he walks his tiger dog, Bulbul, around the farm, he's been breathing easy watching the monkeys flee in terror. For good measure, the farmer also put up posters of his tiger pooch. they have been working too.
