Guard llamas are used in farming to protect sheep, goats, hens or other livestock from coyotes, dogs, foxes and other predators. They are instinctively alert and aware of their surroundings, and they defend against predators by chasing, kicking or spitting at them.

  1. My friend has a guard llama for her sheep.

    I love llamas and think they’re cute, so wanted a closer look. This guy (girl?) AGGRESSIVELY put himself between me and the sheep. Very effective!

  2. Donkeys will perform the same. Neighbors friends has donkeys to protect their livestock. Friends dog went was curious and tried to put his head under the fence to say hi. Donkey wasn’t having it; donkey hair puffed up and came running to stomp the dogs head. That donkey scary!

  3. These guys are such an eco friendly way to keep predators away. No need for the government to spend millions to shoot, trap and poison wolves and coyotes. Plus you can sell their wool. What a bonus.

  4. A friend who had sheep always had a donkey and a llama. The llama was a great watchman, and would try to chase off coyotes. The donkey would swoop in and finish the fight. They would both run to meet you and beg for pets and treats, but they occasionally were a bit bloody.

  5. I remember learning this in college and my professor very pointedly stated “sheep need a herd protector because we’ve overdomesticated them to the point that they’re so dumb, if a predator were to come they would just lay down and die.” And I will always cherish this piece of information.

  6. I read somewhere that donkeys are also beneficial for livestock protection. There is a photo somewhere of a donkey with a dead coyote in it’s mouth.

  7. The only one I’ve been around was only effective as an alarm. If the llama was not with the sheep then we knew something was wrong – she would “hide” in the far corner of the pasture.
