Awesome infographic! I discovered it just in time to include the link in an ebook on Livestock Guardians. Very informative and helpful.

We've had a Llama for the past eight years and until this past year never had a problem with coyotes. Last year we lost 20 lambs, one of them not 20' from the hayfeeder the Llama was eating out of! We're going to try a dog now to see if he's doing better.
