Reminds me of the sticky grenade invented in WWI. Or the Russian dog-deployed anti-tank mines. These had dogs trained to crawl under tanks with a magnetic mine strapped to their backs. Dog sees tank, climbs under tank and mine blows up. Only the dogs were trained using Russian tanks, so when they were released in the field they headed back to the Russian lines. Doh!
