Shepherd Dogs Help Save Goats And Cheetahs At The Same Time!

Filed under: DogGoatCheetah

In Gobabis, Namibia in Africa there is a delicate balance of nature.

Livestock, like goats, are integral to the economy and society.

But there's always the constant threat of attack because Namibia is home to the world's largest population of wild cheetahs!!

So how do you keep your livestock safe??

Kangal dogs!!

These cutie pooches protect their goat buddies against cheetahs but don't kill them.

They just scare most predators away!

So ever since the dogs were introduced into Namibia 19-years ago, the area has seen the largest population of wild cheetahs in 30 years at 4,000!!

That's incredible! The dogs protect the flock, so there's no longer a reason for farmers to have to kill cheetahs!!

Check out the video (above) to see a cutie guard dog in action!

Holy Cow!! Who Moved My Cows???

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueCrazzzzyCowFarm

How does a person steal 18 cows in the middle of the day??

Connecticut farmer Ledyard E. Lewis was charged Friday (March 16) with animal theft after admitting he was a bovine burglar.

Lewis took the placid beasts from High View Farm in Tiverton, Rhode Island, because he claims farmer Arthur Smith owed him animal feed.

Umm…WHAT? If there is discrepancy over a debt, you don’t go ahead and do the MOST difficult thing ever aka transport 18 cows across state lines without telling anyone…and then admit to it a day later!

Plus, it can't have been enough animal feed to justify 18 cows…those calculations seem a little off.

Now the cows are stuck under quarantine in CT due to laws that require all livestock that cross state borders to be tested for certain diseases.

Once the creatures are deemed healthy, they will be safely returned to their Rhode Island homestead.

EXTREME! We think a phone call would have sufficed…but perhaps that trail had already been blazed?? We like to think so!

Ch-ch-check out the crazy cow story (above)!!

Cows On The Loose!!

Filed under: FunnyCrazzzzyCow

At a livestock show a few cows broke loose!

It was a Houston livestock show and people were forced to round up the escapees.

No one was injured, neither were the cows, though the heifers didn't take too kindly to people trying to end their newfound freedom.

Check out the above video for some runaway cows!
