Can docile Devons deal with Predators??

This was photographed at 1pm in the middle of the hayfield where our Devon herd was feeding. The deer was killed the previous night by coyotes, cleaned up by 10 bald eagles and numerous magpies, ravens, etc

 

Devons as small as this first calf heifer, with a pudgy heifer calf due to her high butterfat milk, have no trouble protecting their offspring from our various predators. Docile to all humans, great mothers! This calf has CREAM on her muzzle at the end of nursing, not milk!

Devons have adapted beautifully to the high altitude, predator filled dry land pastures of the high mountain West.
