I have a 275 acre pasture that is over-run with coyotes. The only livestock in the pasture is a large number of whitetail deer.....thus, the coyote problem. I'm considering getting either a Great Pyrenees, an Analolian Shepherd, or a hybrid cross to rid my pasture of coyotes. Will this work? Thanks for your assistance!!

Only if you have secure fencing to keep the Pyr or Anatolian contained. Otherwise they will leave your property and expand their territory. They can get into a lot of trouble if they are loose. Example: killing/injuring/chasing neighbors dogs, cats, livestock, etc. Or biting a person. You will be financially responsible for any damages. They are wonderful guardians but you need fencing to keep them home.

If you have Coyotes that hunt in packs, especially with that much acreage, you should consider 2-3 dogs minimum. GPs bark a lot, Anatolians, less so.
