I second Lilie's comment.
I know that Kyleigh has a high prey drive, but I've worked on impulse control, and she does very well - WHEN I'M AROUND.
In the house, she is fine with the cat (do NOT trust her or the parrot with each other).
Ky has successfully caught and rapidly killed 2 squirrels and a chipmunk in my backyard.
(My other "thankfulness" is that she kills them FAST, so I don't have to finish the job, because I don't know if I could.)
She does "monitor" the tree and the fence on a regular basis, but I can call her off no problem. The three times she has managed to catch and kill? I had run into the house for a couple of minutes - the critters must have thought it was safe for them to come down ... oopps!
I have had ZERO issues getting her to drop the critter, and then I put it in a ziplock back and toss it in the garbage can.
