Preventing the killing of cheetahs by farmers in Namibia — 4 Comments

  1. I saw a National Geographic documentary in which farmers in South Africa used the “Rhodesian Ridgeback” dog as a guard for their livestock to prevent attack from Cheetahs.Seems the Cheetah is afraid of these huge breed of dogs and hence keep away from farms having these guard dogs.It has been very successful in preventing the normal farmer-cheetah animosity over cattle kills.

    • Sadly, there is a culture in Africa amongst farmers that ignores conservation and trying to live in harmony with cheetahs. It is a rather crude uneducated culture.

      Most of the world’s cheetahs are in Namibia and most of them are forced to live on farm land.
