Angry stupid dog!

today my 5 year old 100lb Golden Retriever found a baby live rabit and ate it whole.

I tried for 20 minutes to get him to drop it. using some unkind but safe methods (no abuse i assure you)

but he ended up eating it. all.
I called my local 24hr animal hospital. they said it would pass through him ok. just hopefully the rabbit didnt have any deceases or stuff like that.
my dog got his rabies shot about 2 months ago.

I HATE dogs sometimes..
i hope he doesnt get sick.

That is one disturbing and scary image that comes to my mind.

Duff-Man says...it could be worse. My old next door neighbour had one of those "kitty doors" so her big tabby could go out when he wanted. Our homes backed onto a large wooded parkland - great hunting ground for a cat. One night the cat caught a rabbit, dragged it through the kitty-door and ripped it to shreds inside her house. The cat must have been shaking it around or something because there were blood splatters on the walls (not to mention a large mess on the carpets)....looked like a bloody murder scene from Law & Order.....oh yeah!

My g/f's cats (all out door cats) would just leave intact corpses in front of the door (an offering to the alpha if you will). You quickly learned not to go around barefoot after dark if the lights weren't one. *squish, squish*

Well if it was a cat it most likely would have killed it and left it on your bed for you in the morning. My mom's cat do this all the time with birds and such, it's pretty gross.

Also I'd like to add that my dog would never do anything like that, he runs after ducks sometimes but only in play, he's so gentle I can grab food out of his mouth with no problem. Also he's a vegetarian so maybe that helps heh.

The worst is when my cats bring home animals that aren't quite dead. So you either have to watch the poor animal die or put it out of its misery. Egads.

Don't be too hard on your dog. Remember he is just being a dog

I used to live in a townhouse where field mice would occasionally find their ways in. When my housemate was busy removing the mouse I locked the cats in the bedroom with me and lectured them on the sancitiy of life, no matter how small Do you think they listened?

Heh. My neighbors dog eats cats, birds, 'coons, whatever comes into their yard. My dog on the other hand, just acts like she want to eat 'em. (we call her chicken dog, because she's not very brave)

hm our two cats took out the whole mouse population around our house within weeks some years ago...every 3-4 days there was a mouse lying in front of the door... our cats brought them home because they wanted that we see that they are catching mice...

but now they rarly bring home mice..there aren't too many around..they already brought a salamander
but they never bring back birds...perhaps those taste so good that they can't resist to eat them

when i was a kid two of our dogs brought home 2 halves of a calf carcass home.. one dog was so small she was entirely inside of the calf's body; being a semi-white dog... she was stained a nice orange.


peace.

I have two German Shorthaired Pointers and they catch rabbits all the time. They also go after birds and racoons. They've cought a couple possums too. Sometimes they eat them but most of the time they bring the animals back to me because that's what they're trained to do. Its usually not a big deal but in the summer I try to watch they so they don't pick up crows that died from West Nile Virus.

My Dad and Uncle had a rabbitry in the 70's with over 1000 bunnies at one point. One of the largest in the southeastern US (employed about 30 very happy and exhausted male rabbits.) We slaughtered hundreds and I ate rabbit all through middle/high school. Of course, I avoided eating them whole, prefering to avoid the hair (what a hairball that would make) and they do taste a bit like chicken.

Tip. Apply always-ready rolled newspaper at great rate of speed to top of dogs head. This immediately activates the DRM. (doggie release mechanism) Never fails for me. I have only deployed it three times. Now, doggie responds just to a lowering of my voice.

Now, the girlfriend ...

The next time your dog has something in its mouth that it won't drop (like a ball or chew-toy), try reaching in and touching the roof of its mouth. It sounds crazy, but it works like a charm.

Another method is to grab it by the scruff on the back of its neck and lift it into the air (just the front legs). It shows dominance and it's how the mother tends to her puppies so it's something the dog recognizes.

I saw rabbit meat at the grocery store yesterday, in a box thankfully! But EWWWW! I thought only people who hunted ate rabbits!

my dog is about 100lbs and very friendly. he loves to chase rabbits and cats. with cats if they stop he doesnt know what to do. and then just barks and leaves. he just happened to grab this baby rabbit as it was "playing" dead in some grass.

and there was no way i would be able to get my finger in his mouth with that rabbit. he totally had it in there.

i trides the scruff thing.. it didnt work. - he swallowed it whole.. and it was a really hard to watch while you heard the "cracking" .

i have no idea how he swallowed it.. it was big even for a baby.

its been two days now.. no signs of any problems.

Yeah, I hear ya. In that case there was obviously nothing you could do, but I was just offering an alternative to those who hit their dogs with newspapers, etc.
