Deer show irregular reactions to lasers

During ongoing trials at Campanarios de Azaba (Salamanca), more videos were made of deer. Reactions of the animals to the laser points are not consistent, sometimes they seem to be scared and move away, sometimes they seem not to notice the signals. We will now amplify the trials with other colored lasers.

Fox not deterred in laser trial

As part of the animal deterrent trials at Campanarios de Azaba (Salamanca, Spain), different mammals are being filmed and their reactions to the laser signals. It is hard to film the animals as they are very shy of humans, but in this case a video of a fox could be made. As can be seen the animal only seems to react to the laser towards the end of the video, but in any case the evidence is not conclusive. Similar reactions have been observed in the trials with other mammals, sometimes they seem to become aware of the signal and move away, but other times they don’t seem to notice it and hence continue their path.
