Prey - Turkey, Rabbits

by Agnes
(Laurel Montana)

I live where there are deer. Do you think my boy is out killing them. He brings home quite a few bones. I know he gets a rabbit or turkey every once in a while.

I have noticed a lot fewer turkey hanging around. Can I teach him not to kill deer. He has twice brought home a fawn. I think he killed them on the way but once he had them in the yard, he was very protectful. Even after I buried them, he guarded the graves. I don't think he thought the fawns were food.

Bringing home bones doesn't mean he killed them. He could just be bringing home bones of deer already dead from, perhaps, old age. They are protective of deer, usually.

Perhaps rabbits he would kill. Not sure about wild turkeys. They are pretty skittish.

I would recommend you put up secure fencing of at least 6 feet for your dog rather than letting him run wild.
