In what is probably the craziest headline I have ever written,I've reported that  26  in livestock protection are happening with scientists painting eyes on the butts of cows. The experiment is based upon the idea that farmers who are protecting their herd from lions, would shoot and kill lions in the efforts to protect their livestock. While this makes a lot of sense, it resulting in many lion deaths that    27   would have been unnecessary. Researchers in Australia have been   28    and testing a method of trickery to make lions think they are being watched by the painted eyes on cow butts.

As conservation areas become smaller, lions are increasingly coming into contact with human populations, which are expanding to the   30  of these protected areas.

  Efforts like painting eyes on cow butts may seem crazy at first, but they could make actual headway in the fight for conservation. “If the method works, it could provide farmers in Botswana – and    31   – with a low-cost, sustainable tool to protect their livestock, and a way to keep lions safe from being killed.”

  Lions are   32   ambush hunters, so when they feel their prey has   33    them, they usually give up on the hunt. Researchers are 34   testing their idea on a select herd of cattle. They have painted half of the cows with eyes and left others as normal. Through satellite tracking of both the herd and the lions in the area, they will be able to    35   if their psychological trickery will work to help keep farmers from shooting lions.
