The Role of Dogs in African Agriculture

Dogs are used in African agriculture to protect livestock.

They are indirectly protecting the carnivores that they chase.

Protecting sheep and goats is usually the most important thing for them.

LGDs are also used by farmers to monitor their cattle.

Black-backed Jackals, Caracals and Hyenas are all known predators of livestock.

The dogs are given a huge job.

African agriculture has shown livestock guardian dogs to be an indispensable part of the equation.

These canines are a natural predator deterrent and protect livestock without any second thought.

Farmers might otherwise resort to murdering carnivores to drive them away.

They are an important asset for wildlife conservation in Africa.
