Hungarian farmers use ancient guard dogs to ward off wolves and bears
Hungarian farmers are reviving an ancient method of protecting their flocks from wolves, bears and stray dogs.
The Kuvasz is a breed of livestock dog brought to Hungary thousands of years ago. Now a non-governmental organization (NGO) is providing them to farmers, and preventing the loss of dozens of sheep to wild predators.
The Kuvasz featured in early Hungarian history as both a livestock guardian and royal guard dog. Their role is to detect and ward off wild predators.
