FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “In Namibia, sheepdogs becomes unlikely allies in protecting cheetahs • FRANCE 24 English” – below is their description.
Namibia is home to around 3,500 cheetahs, or half the world’s cheetah population. But the animals there are threatened by farmers, who often shoot them on sight to defend their herds. To protect the big cats, one wildlife sanctuary had the idea of training sheepdogs. These precious guard dogs, which deter cheetahs from getting too close to the herds, are then offered to farmers who use them to defend their goats or sheep. Our France 2 colleagues report, with FRANCE 24’s Camille Nedelec.
