Dogs help cats and sheep and herders and habitats - all at once!

WCS Argentina has a new initiative!  And it involves dogs, sheep and pumas.

WCS is working to reduce conflict between herders and the wild carnivores who stalk their sheep flocks. 

The dogs are a mix of Anatolian shepherd and Great Pyrenees.   They watch over the domestic goats and sheep herds, protecting them from pumas, foxes, condors and other predators.

And because the dogs are protecting their flocks, the herds have stopped resorting to shooting, poisoning or trapping wildlife.  And there are a couple of wins here:

  • Wild carnivores have a better future – many are endangered, such as the Andean cat
  • Herds don’t need so many animals in a herd – and that means there’s less overgrazing and desertification is reduced.
