Excrement from lions, tigers and other big cats makes for an excellent pest deterrent, according to a German circus that is now selling jars of feline faeces for five euros each.

The circus cannot currently operate due to the pandemic, so it opened the pop-up poop shop as a way to keep its 26 lions and tigers fed and sheltered.

Lion tamer Martin Lacey says happy customers have reported that it not only keeps small animals away from gardens and electrical cables, but it also works well for human pests.

“Put some in the garden, and the neighbours will go away,” he joked to Reuters.
