I think dogs know what and what not to eat

    Wolves and dogs have superior sense of smell , it does surprise me that some breed of dogs like labradors and certain hounds will eat plastic and sticks and bad things that could kill them. Even while fed a good whole diet.

    Our own government has a long history of poisoning wolves and feral dogs. Not all canines can be poisoned because they are careful what they eat. Those in the wild that are not careful do not live long enough to raise young.
    Many years ago the government wanted to get rid of all of the coyotes. They poisoned them in every way they could. Even air dropped poison. They killed off many coyotes. The ones they killed were the ones who lived on carrion. Those coyotes who killed for their food lived. This produced a much larger, smarter, and skilled coyote that they couldn't get rid of.

    I have one that will eat almost a whole blanket. He has a fondness for anything soft. He no longer gets blankets in his kennel.
    Two others that will swallow anything they can get their mouth on.
    Another that will dig up rocks and roll them around the yard.
    And another that hunts earthworms...he digs lovely holes in the yard to get at them.

    Interesting. Makes a lot of sense.

    Like deer too , hunters kill the holy hell out of them and are even praised to, yet the deer are seriously thriving. I see them every single day in town and neighborhoods as my dog screams and pulls to get at them
