It's probably because man still believes it is his automatic birthright to have dominion over all the animals that creepeth over the earth?

If a man and his livestock are at risk of predation then he should invest in a more natural form of predator control such as the Sarplaninac.
It is said that where ever the Sar' walks the Wolf never will.
In Finland this has proven to be fact.
Those who had experienced the nuisance of predators introduced the animal into their immediate surroundings and as a result of the efficient patrolling of the Sar', soon reduced the number of attacks to zero.
It is illegal to kill a Wolf in Finland because they are a protected species.
However, if the predator is known to be causing a problem in the area proof of its nuisance must be provided before a special licence to kill it is issued.
If God had a Dog it would be a Sarplaninac.
Gentle as the Lamb, Ruthless as the Wolf.
