ANIMAL TRAINING. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 17 June 1914
ANIMAL TRAINING. Most people have heard of tho cele brated calculating horses of Elberfokl, who can ilo anything up to calculating square roots, in addition to boing pro ficient at spoiling. It would now ap pear, according to tho Paris press, that although these i'oaU aro actually per i'orlned, they aro due to a vory clever device. An animal trainer has in I'ormed tho 'Matin' Uiat ho has utilised a sy.stem of wireless telegraphy /or training animals to do uli i>orts of tricks. The rocoivor is placed in tho horse's bridlo, while the trainor or an assistant manipulates tho transmitter, and^by a codo.of signals, which aro not dillkailt to touch, the animals can he madii to givo any desired "answer." It is suggested that this system is used in thi' case ol the celebrated Blherfield liorsei. Prior to the utilisation of wire less telegraphy, the trainor mentioned employed a method of signals by, means of a tyotli-pick.
