Wildlife Conflict Mitigation Program of the
the Endangered Wildlife Trust:
is a program in South Africa to protect cattle, sheep and goats from cheetahs, leopards, lions, and other predators, while still preserving the predators; a method to control predation effectively by using traditional dog guarding as opposed to the "useless and unsustainable" methods of killing or removing wild felines. The program has been using Anatolian Shepherd Dogs thus far and is considering adding the Africanis Maluti to the program.

About the family of Livestock Guardian Dogs...
“To this day flocks are guarded in the hills of Asia, Europe and Africa* by powerful, robust dogs that are neither clumsy nor pacific. Despite the distances that separate them these breeds have much in common, and the Kuvasz is a member of this extended sheepdog family.”
