It would sure keep me away...

Reuters reports that Australian scientists have synthesized a potent pest-repellant from tiger excrement.
Researchers at the University of Queensland said on Friday they had successfully trailed a tiger poo repellant, warding off wild goats for at least three days.

"Goats wouldn't have seen a tiger from an evolutionary point of view for at least 15 generations but they recognize the smell of the predator," repellent creator Peter Murray said in a statement.

"If we can show this lasts weeks ... we've just tapped into probably a billion-dollar market. It's enormous," he said.

And if they ever find a way to make a useful product from bullshit, Glenn Reynolds will be a very rich man. *Rimshot*
