Weldon, along with his partners in crime : May the Mastiff, and Mika the beloved husky, caught a bird the other day. Not sure who actually knocked it out the air, but when things settled- weldon had it.

My dog has almost no noticeable prey drive, but his brother has apparently become very good at the art of snatching avian creatures out of mid-air. Three in the last week, by the last update I got. Is it wrong that I want to watch just once?
Spoke too soon. Since this post, Fenrir has taken out three moths, a cricket, and just about took a rabbit out of this world. We were walking in the dark and, out of nowhere, he lunged to the side and came back waving a rabbit by the leg. He dropped it when I told him to and it gimped away. To be fair, he caught it so easily that it was probably already gimped.

Neo got his first kills last week. Two lizards, I got one on video and thought about posting it but didn't want to offend anyone.

Two days ago Bodhi got a mouse.
He was on the leash, and he just suddenly dove under my truck.
I pulled him out, saw the tail sticking out of his mouth and yanked hard.
He dropped it, but it wasn't moving.
Now he looks for it every time we walk by that spot.

I'm convinced if we go to the creek with a 20-25' leash, Brewer will be doing his part in managing the local duck population. A few hours ago he found himself fully submressed in freezing cold water trying to drag me towards one of the many Mallards...

Chloe has killed a spider and a few other bugs. WhenI take out for walks to the pond she wants the ducks, fish and turtles.

Although Anubis catched a deer once, his prey drive did not increase as much as I thought, but he has a high one already so I gues that is already enough
kclee I really don´t get the point of what your problem is. As a European I would say fuck is part of the normal American language
Even the old Greeks used words like this and for fuck sake they were very educated. Oh I used the bad word I´m sorry

Kiara has a prey drive but she's too slow to catch things that are too fast.
My aunt had a lot of bird houses and she was always sending me pics of the unfortunate ones that fell out of the house. She will let her bat them around until they died. She would chew on them and burry them (she stopped letting her chew on them when the vet told her that's how they get heart worm.) she would eat bugs constantly. She does try to catch everything though, her ears perk up and she picks up speed running toward the birds on the bike trail. She is always pouncing on the plants trying to catch snakes and lizards, I am sure she has caught some, I have also had to take a few mice from her, she like chewing on them, gross. She really wants a bird, if an eagle or hawk flys pretty low she will follow it around the backyard while it flys around, it's so funny. I was playing w her once and she darted to a flower in seconds and snatched it off a flower... She's like a cat, she like to torture things slowly till they die, she puts it in her mouth then bats it around w her paws until whatever it is stops moving.

Chase likes to catch flies, stalks birds but to my knowledge hasn't caught one, and kills moths, crickets, and other bugs.

Kiara did another ninja kill on a butterfly. Snatched it out of the air and batted it around.

My two young ones dug a six foot trench up a hill following a mole. They caught it yesterday. They obviously hurt it catching it but didn't try to eat it and left it alone when I told them to leave it.

Poor little stray kitten lost its life in our back yard this morning
just like kids when its quite something is up, so when sierra and jack did not come running back to the door after being let out i had to wonder what was up, what was up is they found a kitten. i hate being the one to "clean" it up, at least they never tear them apart but i always feel sad.

Suka's kills in the past 3 years- he likes to go after the 'big' stuff and he doesn't bother with birds and mice.
5 opossums (vicious animals!!)
1 bird (it had a broken wing and couldn't fly away)
and almost 1 cat.
Oh, and he likes eating ants that crawl into my house...for some reason. LOL

My vicious man-eating Chihuahua attacks bugs for a living. He's so fierce and tough and makes his victim suffer until he eats them.
Callie sniffs bugs and then gets really mad when it tickles her nose. If she manages to sneeze them out, she quickly kills them. Yet she hasn't learned yet not to sniff small crawling things.
Oh, yesterday she was trying desperately to catch a fly and it was the funniest thing I've ever witnessed. She was perched on the edge of the bed and kept snapping at it and jerking her head to see where it went.
Other than bugs, the only casualty of my dogs has been a squirrel. So far. But they're still young.

We've been in our new house for 3 weeks now...
Our wall is about 6 ft. tall, so she is biding her time for one of the rats to fall off, because they are just taunting her.
Haven't experienced any opossums or racoons yet, but it's just a matter of time.
Birds are just fun - she tries and tries. This is new for her, she will perfect her techniques.
I'm just waiting for the day when some unfortunate cat or bunny finds its way into our yard.

Jen, I don't envy you having to clean that up. I love kittens so it would depress me. I'm pretty sure Willow would kill a kitten if given the chance. I could be wrong but the one she was exposed to when I picked Aspen up held her focus very intently. I made the woman put the little thing up cause I had never seen her that focused before. Thankfully she does not look at my cat that way. So far, my two have only killed insects. They have a hay day getting the crickets during the summer time. Willow is also very good at attacking leaves!

We were around a kitten for the first time this weekend and Anna would chase it but we would always pull them apart. She would follow the kitten under the dresser and it would smack her in the face and she would paw at it back. It was too cute. She tried to bite the kitten's ears. The kitten of course would pretty much just slap her and bite her nose. We have been thinking about getting a cat one day just not sure how she will do yet. Of course she didn't hurt the cat and she had plenty of time to while we were dragging her out from under the bed. She just seemed to want to play. Maybe a little rough but play like it was a puppy.
Anna hasn't killed anything so far. Besides bugs of course which she tortures them. It is pretty funny to watch.

Our Kill count so far is:
Possums: 4 - at least.
Neighbors Chickens: 5 (on different Occasions)
Moths: Lost count
Ducks: 0 (almost became 1 a couple nights ago with Compton trying to eat one of our Ducklings, the Duckling however, not phased by Compton one bit, pecked him on the nose a couple times, once this happened Compton was no longer certain he knew what he was meant to do with the Duckling or whether he liked it as much as he first thought, so he just watched it from a safe distance -the other side of the lounge room under a table)
Halli is the hunter in our pack, she sits at the fence line where possums run across and chases them from the ground as they run back and forth on the fence to try and escape, eventually they get so tired that they have no option but to drop to the ground as they can't run on the fence anymore, and this is when she strikes.

I guess I've been lucky thus far with Evie's only fatalities being bugs, frogs/toads, a snake, and a mouse.
Til tonight!!!! We had a nest of baby bunnies in our yard and all have gone on their way except for one. Evie scratched at the door to come in tonight and I always look to be sure she doesn't have anything- HER MOUTH WAS CLOSED and I saw nothing. She runs in, bolts under my kitchen table and starts crunching and of course I couldn't get it from her. She ate the whole thing. I about puked and I'm burning my rug and no kisses for her!

Shortly after she arrived Maya took out twenty laying hens. Not sure how to class it, as best as I can tell, she played with one until it didn't play anymore then got another one and so on until we figured out she was missing. Nothing was eaten and she didn't rip them up, just messed with them until they died. Cats are not a problem, they will come to see her and if she gets to annoying they bat her in the nose and she will leave them be. We are still learning about the goats. We are much calmer around them than we were at first, we did discover that they can slam us with there head and it doesn't fell very good. We also have learned that a little warm, fresh, just milked goat milk on our kibble is just a slice of Heaven! As we all know, mouth, throat, stomach, heart. Love to read about others problems, makes mine seem so much less
