Llama protects lambs against foxes

A BABY llama called Simon is helping to protect lambs from foxes on a farm near Redruth in Cornwall, reports The Daily Telegraph.

The animal has apparently inherited his mothers dislike of foxes and is being used by farmer Chris Davidson to stop attacks on his flock at Calamankey Farm.

Mr Davidson has lost none of his 460 lambs since introducing the llamas as watchdogs last year.
