All kidding aside, I don't think this idea will work very well in application. I highly suspect that a sheep's heart rate climbs not only when they're being attacked by wolves, but also when they're fighting with one another, mating, or just exerting themselves. Too much potential for false alarms IMO.

Add another texter to the group. All my kids text each other even when they are in the same room, and they are not teenagers anymore either. In this case it is not a bad idea. Natural selection is one thing but the sheep are domesticated and being farmed as part of someones livelyhood.

... or climbing a Mountain, perhaps. Have they thought of that?

Anyway,surely this is a job for the Lonely Goatherd. It'd give them something more useful to do than sitting high on a hill going "yo-odel-ay-odel-ay-e-oo" all day. :-/

Life is a hideous business, and from the background behind what we know of it peer daemoniacal hints of truth which make it sometimes a thousandfold more hideous.

Interesting................. A text saves the day for the textiles and creates a new stress testing job market in the meantime. Just think of all the possibilities........ :tsu:
