I'm sitting here reading and I hear my dog yelping a little. Look outside and he has a good size rabbit. So far in the last two years that dog has brought home 2 rabbits, 3 squirrels (one he brought in the house),10 birds (1 still alive he brought in my house), several mice and 1 turtle (Don't ask me where he got that from). He also killed 1 goose at the park. He got off the leash and swam up and down the Magothy river until the DNR people got a boat and got him out.

My house has a fenced in yard and it isn't that big. He caught all that stuff off my little .14 acre lot. Can you imagine the stuff he would bring home if I lived in the woods? Plus he swam up and down the river for 45 min when he killed that goose. Guess I should learn to duck hunt.

Sounds like you have a natural born hunting dog there, what breed is it?

My sisters cat would bring birds and rabbits and leave it on our neighbors door steps when we lived in town houses.

The dog is an English Lab Mix. Not sure what he is mixed with. He has really tall legs.
Yeah I guess you are right I don't need to learn how to hunt. I can just let him do it.  laugh

Found out why he was yelping. Bunny rabbit didn't go down without a fight. Got the dog on the nose pretty good. Had to clean it out. Dog didn't like that much.

Yea. He just got his rabies shot in the spring. I cleaned the wound really good so it won't get infected.

Is it a bite or a scratch? See I had a dog when I was a child but my mom made us get rid of. Well one day I saw this rabbit and decided to catch it. So I run it down and corner into a fence and reach down and snagged it behind the neck like you might pick up a puppy or kitten.

Well this is not the way to pick up a full grown wild rabbit. It was summer time and I had on a short sleeve shirt, that rabbit had me ripped open from amy wrists to just above my ebows in seconds. Before I knoew I was scratched once him machine gunned me to shreds with this back legs.

I learned a huge lesson there, now I make my wife when long sleeves to catch me rabbits...........

I couldn't tell if it was a scratch or a bite. It didn't look too bad after I cleaned it. Looks good today. Not too deep. I went to go find the rabbit after I posted but the big dummy (that's what I call him and being the big dummy he is he comes when I call him it) hid the rabbit from me. I guess I'll find it when I go out and clean the leaves in the yard or when it starts to smell.  sick

Put a bell on his collar - worked for our cat. I am a hunter, fisherman and crabber but don't see anything "cute" about a dog killing all these animals for no reason. mho.

He doesn't kill them for no reason. He eats them and brings home what's left.

You make it seem as if the dog is evil or something. He is doing what animals are supposed to do. They kill other animals for food. He's not doing it because he's mean and vicious. It is his instinct. His nature. Dogs are hunters by nature. 

I am amazed that the dog can catch animals being as he is domesticated and never been hunting. I don't see anything wrong with one animal killing another in it's own territory. No different then wolves, bears, or cougars. I don't let my dog run loose. He is doing this in my own yard. His own territory.
