Feline Scent Marking: Tracking Big Cats with Cologne

Scientists use Calvin Klein cologne to lure jaguars

Biologists Rony Garcia and Jose Moreira from the Wildlife Conservation
Society's (WCS) Jaguar Conservation Program say they use hidden cameras
as a primary source for observing and tracking jaguars in the
Guatemala's Maya Biosphere Reserve.

But they also rely on Obsession for Men, a cologne known for its complex
scent, to help lure then research and hopefully ultimately preserve
jaguars in the Central American country.

Read how they're using cologne to lure big cats in the rest of the
article, here:

Another report, focusing on cologne in zoos:

This study probably explains why I've never photographed a bobcat, and
why skunks find me irresistible.
