Shepherded

Watched and followed as suspicious of mischief, as a shepherd watches a wolf.

“Russian vessels of war are everywhere being carefully `shepherded' by British ships, and it is easy to see that such a state of extreme tension cannot be continued much longer without an actual outbreak.” —Newspaper leader, April 27th, 1885.
