Dead sheep lie in a forest in Bad Wildbad, Germany, Monday, April 30, 2018. More than 40 sheep have died in an apparent wolf attack in southwestern Germany, adding fervor to an ongoing debate in the country on how much protection wolves should get. Sheep farming official Anette Wohlfahrt told the German news agency dpa Monday that a lawn in the southwestern community of Bad Wildbad looked “like horror” after a wolf there apparently killed 32 sheep, while more of them drowned in a nearby river when they tried to escape. Other sheep had to be shot dead because of their injuries. (Christoph Schmidt/dpa via AP)

In this 2013 photo provided by the U.S. Department of Agriculture a Kangal dog greets Ben Hofer of the Hutterite Rockport Colony near Pendroy, Mont. Nearly 120 dogs from three large breeds perfected over centuries in Europe and Asia to be gentle around sheep and children but vicious when confronting wolves recently completed a four-year study to see how they'd react to their old nemesis on a new continent. The U.S. Department of Agriculture supplied Cão de Gado Transmontanos, Karakachans and Kangals that can weigh 150 pounds (68 kilograms) to guard sheep in Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Washington and Oregon.
