Understanding Predators Big and Small

Every year more than 500,000 sheep, goats, and cows are lost to predatory animals in the United States, resulting in both financial and emotional losses for farmers, ranchers, homesteaders, and backyard-animal raisers. [ML1]The Encyclopedia of Animal Predators by Janet Vorwald Dohner teaches readers how to protect their livestock and pets from harm by learning to identify threatening species through their habits and habitats.

Through profiles of more than 50 [DB2]of the most common predatory animals, Dohner’s in-depth guide explains how these animals think and behave, where and how they live, and how they attack and kill prey. Readers will learn such skills as [DB3]how to know when a wolf is ready to attack, how to distinguish a coyote’s vocalizations, and how to react if they ever encounter a bobcat[DB4]. This hardworking reference also includes details on nonlethal methods for keeping predators away, including electric fencing and livestock guardian animals; a list of predator threats by region; and a key to identifying animal tracks and scat. The book features a Damage ID guide for each predator, to help readers determine whether an attack was by a coyote (most common), a domestic dog (next most common), or another animal, from grizzly bear to possum, eagle to alligator.
