Do you have livestock guardians working for you? We're looking for reader reports on your steadfast sentinels, be they dogs, llamas, donkeys, geese, or any other attentive animals. What are the best guardians to protect chickens from hawks? Are any guard animals effective against snakes? Have you had to deal with bears? Tell us about your experiences with predators and protectors by sending an email to Letters@MotherEarthNews.com. Pictures are welcome!

Our LGD keeps the coyotes away, keeps the chickens safe, keeps teh horse company, and lets us know when anyone that doesn't belong happens to wander nearby. He's a sweetie, too! Loves scritches, tummy rubs, and treats, but when his built in alarm clock goes off, he's off on his rounds! :-)
