Japan – A robot wolf with flashing red eyes and huge white fangs may soon be protecting crops across Japan after scaring away wild boars. It will cost farmers around $4,828 if they want to see it guarding their crops. The Japan Agricultural Cooperative said significantly fewer crops had been lost under the electronic wolf ’s protection. The device can cover more than 3,000 feet, suggesting it is more effective than an electric fence.
Brazil – A pet dog has made a home for himself in front of the hospital where his owner died.

It is not the first story of a dog showing unwavering loyalty to its owner.
