A farmer in central Pennsylvania is taking extra precautions for deer hunting season. Friz Konieczka doesn't want his animals mistaken for deer, so he painted bright orange stripes on his horses, his cows, and goats. He's now the proud owner of orange-striped turkeys and even an orange-striped dog. Who knows — if the paint actually wards off hunters, maybe the deer will be trying it next year.
