Where bad choices make good stories
Really surprised the heyena lasted that long. Donkey must be playing with him some. Yea, coyotes don't stand a chance.
I once saw a mule kill a mountain lion, awesome!
There are pics out there of a donkey or mule killing a mountain lion. Hardcore.
That's a hyena not coyote, some kind of fenced in torture, probably Africa or China.
Yes, I'm well aware it's a hyena. I was just saying..... never mind.I doubt it's a fenced in torture show. Nobody's watching. More than likely the hyena got into the donkey's pen, the owner heard the ruckus and ran out with his camera or cell phone.
I hope the farmer had a decent-sized pistol in the other hand, in case the fight took a turn against the donkey. Either way, I found this very difficult to finish. I've never been a farmer and had my livelihood eaten or mauled by wild animals, so it makes it harder watching something suffer while the donkey bit the shit out of it.-Just A Chemist.
Lots of people run a few donkeys with cattle out here in Texas. You get these coyote pancakes out in the pasture. But there are still zillions of coyotes. We get them right up in the yard and you have to be real careful with outdoor pets around here.
They are put in with cattle horses goats sheep any animal that will put up with them.
My neighbor would let his dogs out at night and they would start their circuit by running through our yard. My new wife moved her donkey into the back yard and we never saw the dogs again after his first night there.
Wirecutter, I knew what you were saying.
Donkeys are a great choice for uncleared land that has thicket, commonly found in East and Central Texas. They clear out dense brush and thicket; eradicate snakes; get rid of vermin; and keep the coyotes away. Plus they are extremely hardy creatures, and are often quite friendly as well..
Donkeys are great in a cow pasture. Coyotes stay away from donkeys. For good reason.
Nothin like a little heel and tow around the yard to junk start your day!; ^ )
"Who's laughing now, eh?"
A friend back in Texas put a donkey in with his cows. I asked him later if the donkey was now his guard donkey. He said the donkey teamed up with the boss cow, and they kept everything away from the small herd.
A Hyena is a pack animal. Not the kind noted for solitary hunting. They rarely go after zebra alone either unless they are desperate.
There were 4 mules that I passed on my morning bike rides. They would watch me intently and amble over to the fence. I started packing a few apples and some carrots with me. They were always gentle, had huge teeth but never once even nipped me. Beautiful animals, big brown eyes. It's about all I miss in w Texas.
They also put them with sheep for protection
Donkeys are great animals by my experience. My Dad raised ponies and we had about 20 or so head, plus beef cattle, on 60 acres. He borrowed a jack donkey in hopes they would breed with the ponies, but no luck there. I didn't weigh that much back then and every now & again I'd climb on him bareback and we'd take a ride around the pasture. Didn't need a bridle either, just grab an ear in the direction you wanted him to go. Fun times.
