Some donkeys are good guards. They have strong maternal instincts, and often protect whatever they are raised with. I raise mini donkeys, and they have run off an occasional bobcat or coyote. They chase, bite, kick and stomp.

That having been said, mini donkeys are no match for a mountain lion. They shouldn't be used as guards, altho in quantity they do manage to protect themselves pretty well. A couple of standards would be a better bet, although its not a given that they will guard for you. It depends on the individual personality of the donkey, and whether they were raised around the type of animals you have.
