Dogs used to save Cheetahs from being shot by farmers

Dogs are used to protect sheep and other livestock from the cheetahs in Africa - thereby saving the big cats from potential shootings by aggrieved farmers..

This dog in turkey is known as "Sivas Kangal" it means ; Kangal of Sivas. Sivas is a city in turkey. And kangal is the wisest dog of the world. These dogs are soo intelligent that they hardly need any training to save flocks from Cheetahs.

Cheetah's are probably the most delicate of all big cats. They simply can't risk injury getting into fights with those dogs. Because of their style of hunting, they need to be in top condition and injury free. Even if it could take on the dog and win, it would inevitably end up with injuries that would make it extremely difficult to hunt. It's just not worth the risk for the cheetah.

Sumatran Tigers : A brief

 Sumatran tigers are the smallest of all tiger species and are only found in Indonesia..A survey in 1998 showed that there were only 400 -500 of them remaining wild..But now, their real numbers are not revealed and are believed to be below 200. A fully grown male Sumatran can weigh around 136kg(300lbs) and measure 204cms(6feet, 9 inches). Similarly a female may weigh up to 91kgs (200lbs)and 198cms(6 feet, 2 inches).

Their smaller size makes them very swift and agile in moving through the thick dense Indonesian forests. They also have a unique webbing in between their toes helping them swim faster. Their prey ranges from wild boar, monkeys, Deers, Malayan Tapirs, fish, fowls and Orangutans..They sometimes prey on wild mice and other small animals when the larger prey is scarce.
