We see quite a few of them on farms and ranches here in Utah. When put out with sheep, they become fiercely protective of the flock, and will attack coyotes, dogs, and cougars that try to prey on the sheep. They are quite vicious fighters. They are also used a lot for backpacking, as they are not bothered by the higher altitudes found in our forest country.
By the way, it is pronounced “yama” in Spanish.
Thanks for filling us in on the yama there.
