Cellphone moos, Indian leopards fooled


Got leopards? Officials in western India have discovered a novel approach to capturing wayward individuals without having to resort to live bait or potentially dangerous pit traps. The angle is pretty clever, pile some critter sounds on a mobile -- cows and goats are favorites -- plug it into some speakers in a cage and let it rip. This technique has apparently worked a handful of times so far, with the captured cats then safely delivered to a new home in the woods. We're hoping nobody gets silly and test drives Emotive's push ringer on some unsuspecting sap while on safari.
