This is a favourite of The Wolf Army because it is the most logical and least complicated solution. Donkeys are already used in Europe and some parts of the US with great effect. No special training, nor special food needed

Mules also work well, Better then guns, there is no need for these hunting management and wolf killing gangs going on, even dogs are scared of mules and donkeys

Without a doubt , I am certain there are non-lethal alternatives known and available to the ranching industry, and while I expect there are a few good ranchers out there already and willingly to employ, I don't have the perception that wolf predation on livestock is such a "huge problem" at all if the statisitics are accurate - quoted as less than 1% of cattle loss - correct me if I am wrong. What is to be done about the overall mindset toward wildlife, predators in particular, in general. This is the rub ! Competition and The hunting industry? I just feel that the problem of the war on wildlife has its roots in a deep seated alienation and fear of nature, viewing ourselves satisfyingly outside of nature's constructs, and our own predatory drive to dominate and control. o, gads, I babble. I wish I could articulate this better. Never without hope though ! Else I wouldn't be here.
