Live like a llama

Lexy Fowler, who owns a sheep property in Colorado, says she tried everything to stop coyotes killing her sheep without success – that is until she discovered llamas – those aggressive, funny-looking, afraid-of-nothing creatures from South America. “When llamas see something coming,” she said, “They put their heads up and walk straight toward it. That’s too aggressive for coyotes, so they keep away. Coyotes are opportunists, and llamas take that opportunity away.”
It sounds a bit like that old advice from the Bible about what to do when temptation stalks us. “Put on the whole armour of God,” it says. “Submit yourself to God. Resist the Devil and he will flee from you.” As Benjamin Franklin rightly said, “It is easier to send that first desire packing than to satisfy all the ones that will follow it.”
