Donkey, The Defender

Donkeys are wonderful protectors to flocks of sheep and goats as well as herds of cattle. 

Picture from Fox News

They have a natural and aggressive dislike of coyotes, wolves and other canines and will defend themselves and their companions vigorously.  As a herd animal themselves, they remain an integral, grazing part of the flock and so are always on hand to run down and trample a predator, or discourage it with a strong and well-aimed kick.
