Trail cameras are used mainly by hunters, set up to record pictures automatically when it senses motion. They can also be used for wildlife photography, security or just simply observation of animal movements in their natural habitat.

Fortunately for us, this technology has another cool, unexpected benefit: it allows us to see all the crazy and mischievous things our furry friends get up to when they think nobody is watching. Bored Panda has compiled a list of occasions when the camera caught the perfect shot, some hilarious, some slightly sinister and some just downright weird.

Which one did you like best? Let us know in the comments below!
