It's not hard to understand why big cats would go after domestic animals. When prey is scarce. Those who live in areas of big cats habitat have to get smarter about protecting their livestock and start looking after the prey animals. Big cats prefer their natural prey and avoid conflict with humans if they can but they have to eat just like us. If conflict between humans and predators is avoided less big cats will die as a result of retaliatory actions by angry farmers. Surely education of farmers in remote wild regions can only help save big cats that are only doing what big cats do. Prey species are a vital key in the preservation of the wonderful predators that are all facing uncertain futures as global human populations explode and push evermore into remote areas that were once wild.
