B is the best answer. It properly compares 'wild animals' with 'livestock'

B also has a problem. It needs a have. I see C as a lesser of the evils

It is between B and C. I'll pick B, though not perfect. It is slightly better than C.

You are right. But, i have seen that, in many cases, do or does is omitted for brevity. If there is an answer choice that uses do, i would choose that one, provided everything else is correct. bottomline, this can be omitted in some cases.
