An innovative way to help prevent car crashes Via BBC
Previous experiments involved spraying the animals’ coats with reflective paint, but that reflection proved uneven, and there’s some speculation that the chemicals interfered with the animals’ natural waterproofing. Antlers, however, are always front-and-center, and they are shed in the spring when the sun returns. A new coating can then be applied during the traditional fall round-up.
With all the money and engineering time spent on avoiding automobile/livestock collisions, it’s refreshing that — in some cases, anyway — all we needed was a shiny new horn.
