Much love for cute and cuddly animals (not the icky ones, no doubt) but when it comes to actual humans, it's guns blazing. (sort of..)The Knightscope K5 security robot was deployed by the San Francisco branch of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) to deter homeless people from sleeping and loitering near its building.
The local community however did not take kindly to this iPod on wheels and took matters in their own hands.
It ended up being smeared in feces and eventually drowned in a lake.
