Bad Ass

Donkeys despise canids (wolves, coyotes, foxes, domestic dogs)

They’ve been known to stomp the shit out of them, and they don’t discriminate, so keep your pets on a leash if theres a donkey nearby

That’s why donkeys are often pastured with goats and other farm animals – they are great protectors!

Llamas are also very good sentinel animals and apparently require less training than donkeys to be effective.

Geese have also been used because they’re super loud and will attack anything that gets close to their nest, although I do believe that includes the animals they’ve been charged with defending as well, because geese are actually satan’s spawn

If you know of any other animals used to guard livestock that aren’t super obvious (like dogs) please leave a comment.
