Mobile Phones To Find Lost Pets


HELSINKI (Reuters) - Lost your cat or dog? No need to whistle or call on a fruitless search -- just track your pet with your mobile phone.

A Finnish firm says "wanted" posters of lost pets will be a thing of the past thanks to new technology: a mobile phone and a tracking unit that is strapped on the back of the animal.

When the pet goes missing its movements are followed via an electronic map displayed on a handheld monitor by the owner.

The device is also expected to be popular among hunters needing to trace their dogs searching for game, said Matti Koskelo, sales manager at Pointer Solutions, one of the firms marketing the system.
