Telephoning Leopards.

Popular Science reports:

In what has to be today's strangest news, Reuters reports that forest guards in western India are using cell phones to entrap stray leopards.

Rather than using the time-honored method of lashing a goat to a tree,
today’s Indian leopard hunters rely on a sophisticated trap equipped
with speakers and a cell phone playing ringtones of various helpless
animals begging for their lives.

The top ringtone downloads for hungry leopards include: the mooing
cow, the crowing rooster, and—the chart-topping favorite among these
big cats—the bleating goat. Unlike that dork next to you in the grocery
store who mercifully answers his “Gilligan’s Island” ringtone after the
“three-hour tour” portion, the Indian prey-tones play for upward of two
hours before an angry leopard stomps over to the trap to silence the
digital lamb.
