Livestock line of sight, how it works and how to counter it
Livestock animal are herbivore, all of them and they are considered as prey animal. Prey animal means animal that are on the bottom of food chains. Prey animal need to be aware of predator, since prey animal are basically predator foods. In order to survive in the wild, prey animal like cows, goat, sheep, buffalo and many more needs to have defense mechanism, be it quick feet, good sense, or great line of sight. However, livestock animal like cows and sheep have only one defense mechanism and that is their eyes or line of sight, besides their quick feet to run away. Livestock like sheep relies heavily on their line of sight in order to spot any predator quickly before they can come closer. When sheep spot any predator or suspicions, they will immediately run away from dangers. This special line of sight has been developed from sheep from ancient times. They are basically evolving to adapt in grassland and to be aware of their predators. This line of sight is product of evolution and adaptation of sheep for millennia. Today, sheep also have their special line of sight, in order to understand this eyes and how it works, we are going to explain that to you right away.
How sheep line of sight works
Sheep eyes are located on their sides of their head, unlike human eyes that are located on the front of their head. There is reason why sheep eyes are located on the side of their head. Sheep habitats are mostly in vast grassland with some thick bushes. Their side eyes enable sheep to have wider vision around them, and it help them to scan environment around them for any suspicions and predator that might pounce and kill them. When sheep spotted predator and they feel threatened sheep will run away as fast as they can. However, male sheep or ram can also defend themselves using their majestic horn. If ram feels confident with their strength and the body of their attacker is smaller than ram, ram will charge ahead and try to ram their attacker. However, this aggressiveness mostly found on wild sheep, wild goat, or their relatives like mountain goat. Domestic sheep won’t try to ram their attacker and will just flee as fast as they could when they feel threatened.
How we can counter sheep line of sight
Sheep line of sight is really wide, they can scan for any sign of attacker very fast, they can easily spot you from far, and they will run away fast once they feel threatened. However, sheep line of sight is also not perfect. One way to counter this wide line of sight of sheep is by approaching them from behind. Although sheep line of sight is really wide, they can’t directly look behind as they need to turn their head backwards. They need a moment to turn their head backward so they can’t easily spot you from behind. If you are trying to catch running sheep, you need to approach them from behind so they won’t easily spot you. Once you are close enough, leap and try to put your arms into their neck and press them with your body weight. Sheep will mostly surrender once they are caught and won’t fight anymore after few moments. There you have it one way to counter sheep wide line of sight.
Sheep are majestic and loyal livestock that are very useful for human lives. Sheep is important livestock and they can also be quite cute.
