Don't folk have an Alpaca / Lama or two in with their sheep and lambs, as a deterrent to foxes?? Would that work against W-T Eagles?? (These birds normally are carrion eaters or go for weak and sick animals...are Angoras much smaller than, say, Merino lambs??). I just wonder if eagles were actually observed to be the guilty party for each of those 15 slaughters...? (how about a "lamb-cam" :-). Just worried about knee-jerk reactions to this sort of media publication.
