Why You Absolutely Must Make Friends With Donkeys

I live in the South, and there are several farms in this area.  Recently, I heard a story about a farmer that made me wonder.  The characters in the story are: the farmer, some cows, a donkey, and a nameless predator.  Okay, I will name the predator in the next paragraph.

A coyote.  That's what the predator was.  Now, that we have established the characters, I shall tell the story.

The farmer was having serious problems with his cows.  No, it's not what you are thinking.  There were no local teenagers sneaking onto the farm to tip over the cows.  Nah!  Instead, something was coming to his farm at night and was attacking his cows.  As he later found out, it was a coyote.  Or two.  I was not there, so I can't tell you.  But there was at least one coyote involved.

Anyway, the cow-coyote saga continued until one day, when the farmer introduced the cows to a new friend: a donkey.  After exchanging e-mail addresses and phone numbers with each other, they all went to sleep.  I think.  Well, to cut the long story short, the coyote problem was solved after the donkey joined the family.  Why?  Well, here is the explanation.

Apparently, donkeys are effective guard animals.  They are "aggressive towards dogs, coyotes and foxes and provide indirect protection for domestic animals." [Source]  Armed with excellent hearing, vision and a strong sense of smell, donkeys can detect and chase intruders, including humans.  [Source]

Moral of the story:  Make friends with donkeys if you have a coyote problem.

Why else would you befriend a donkey? *eyebrows raised*

Moral of the story: seek help/make friends with those who would help you grow.

Happy new year
