    Sheep see the dog as part of the herd, since it’s a guard dog. The reaction seems natural, basically a sheep comforting a “sheep” after a traumatic situation. Don’t ask the sheep why the “sheep” was able to fight off two wolves tho :d

    I’m surprised the wolves were even able to find the sheep in that terrain. The greyer ones blend quite well.

    If only the dog could save them from the slaughter house

      I believe these sheep are bred for their wool

        They still go to the slaughterhouse at a fraction of their usual lifespan

          Which probably still gives them longer lives than the average wild sheep

            A quick google:
            Wild sheep(mouflon) live 8 to 12 years in the wild.
            Farmed sheep are killed at 3 to 6 years old (excluding lamb which are killed at between 10 weeks to 6 months old)

            So that’s a resounding no.

              I mean, don’t get me wrong, humanity is definitely to blame for this, but I really doubt a domesticated sheep has the same life expectancy in the wild as a mouflon

                You mean the domesticated sheep doesn’t have the instincts anymore to run from predators? My dog also doesn’t have the same instincts as a wild wolf but I’m not gonna kill and eat them because of that.

      The dog is fine that’s not his blood.
