Technology could help keep wild animals out of Japan's farms and rice paddies. The "Super Monster Wolf" robot could scare away wild boar and deer. It looks real. It has wolf-like hair, teeth and red eyes. It also has 48 different howls so animals can't get used to it. Farmers lose millions of dollars every year to hungry animals.

Japan's agricultural association tested the wolf. It really reduced crop losses. It was better than electric fences at keeping animals out. The robot senses movement one kilometre away. The wolf will be sold from next month. The price is $4,800 but farmers can rent it. Japan's farmers hope it will stop wild animals eating their crops.
