Uthaya, Working Guardian in South Africa

Meet Uthaya, an Anatolian Shepherd dog. Cheetah Outreach has placed him on a working farm as part of their pilot program of placing Anatolians with farmers to guard livestock against predators.
The hope is that Anatolians like Uthaya will help change the future of the cheetah. Instead of being captured or killed by farmers, the cheetah usually respect the Anatolians and move on to find easier prey.
Uthaya was placed on this farm at six weeks of age. He was first raised with the small stock.

Uthaya's owner reports "tremendous success" having Uthaya on his farm. To date, no sheep have been lost to predators while Uthaya has been on watch! Posted by Picasa
