This paper examines the problem of detecting various types of animals in video sequence taken in the wild. Animal detection is useful in prevention of animal-vehicle accidents and will increase human and wildlife safety. We propose a fully automated method for detecting large animals before they enter the road and warn the driver through audio and visual signals, this also helps in saving crops in farm from animals. The proposed framework aims to automatically extract foreground objects of

A conditional random field is applied to effectively combine the saliency induced features, which allows us to deal with unknown pose and scale variations of the foreground object (and its articulated parts). Based on the ability to preserve both spatial continuity and temporal consistency in the proposed VOE framework, experiments on a variety of videos verify that our method is able to produce quantitatively and qualitatively satisfactory VOE results. Neural network is used to find the animal type.
