Have a coyote problem? You wouldn’t if you had Buck in the backyard.
Steve Hipps took this photo of his donkey “Buck” with a coyote that came into his pasture. After stomping the coyote, Buck picked it up and began slinging it like a rag doll.
We can hear it now… daylight breaks, and the sound of braying donkeys echoes through the deer woods. Hunters, refusing to throw up their hands and do nothing about coyotes eating all the fawns and turkeys, turn instead to the Donkey Solution.
All kidding aside, it’s no secret that donkeys despise coyotes. That’s why donkeys are often pastured with goats and other farm animals.
Meet “Buck,” a South Carolina donkey that didn’t appreciate the bold daytime ramblings of a local coyote.
Buck lives on a small backyard pasture belonging to Steve Hipps. Steve lives on 9 acres in Simpsonville, S.C., which is just southeast of Greenville about 60 miles up I-85 from the Georgia line at Lake Hartwell.
Buck used to share his pasture with a girlfriend, but after some baby donkeys showed up, Steve decided Buck would have the pasture to himself.
