Dead animals in my yard

    So far this summer I've found a dead skunk, squirrel and cat in my backyard. Didn't see what happened, but I'm sure one or both of my dogs are responsible. Should I be alarmed?

    I don't think there is any reason to be alarmed. Your dogs are doing what is natural to them.

    If you didn't see what happened, but it's possible that both of your dogs are responsible, that tells me you *might* have your dogs loose together in a yard unsupervised....if that's the case, yes, you should be concerned, but not with the (current) dead animals in the yard.

    I would be concerned about my dog getting skunked....lol. Not easy to get rid of that smell.....

    It was a baby skunk. No smell.

    Yeah thanks. They're ok though. If I shouldn't be concerned about the dead animals, just say that part.

    Besides the fact that where there is a baby skunk there is probably an adult...lol....With the exception of one of them possibly being rabid I wouldn't be too concerned. Mine will go after anything that isn't each other.

    Translation: "Don't tell me anything I don't want to hear, because it interferes with my delusions." Ok. If you have two dogs outside together unsupervised around stimuli like small animals, and they kill each other, hope you find somewhere else to cry about it.

    SS makes a good point and offers great advise. Never leave those two dogs unsupervised if there is a potential for stimuli. It's a disaster waiting to happen, not an accident.

    You can say that again. That is how I read it too.
