|Blanketback||Good kitties! Yeah, I can understand not sticking around for the crunching, lol. I remember being a bit freaked out when I went to pick up a mouse carcass and it was missing it's head. I can't count how many mice my cats have killed over the decades, but this was the only one that was ever consumed.|

|Lilie||I'll be outside at 4:30 in the morning and my barn cats will bring up their latest catch. Seriously, they go through the entire scenario of the kill, tossing it in the air, rolling over on their backs, stalking it....it's disgusting. But, I always say, "Really? And then what happend?" Eventually, they'll start crunching on it and I retreat back into the house.|

LOL! It can't be very big, or the box would be gone by now.
The thing is, I have my dog out there with me whenever I'm shoveling and he's got a "Go on" command to get him off the driveway and let me finish the job before we play. If he's pestering me to play and I'm not done, then he gets a warning that he'll be put back inside. And the carcass was on my 'spot' exactly - since we have 4' of snow in the yard, this is where I won't fall through since I've cleared it and packed it down. I'll never know.

I truly think if your pup killed the rabbit, he would have at least brought it to you. It would have been a game and he would have wanted you to enjoy it as well.
Ya'll might have surprised another critter when y'all came out and it dropped it's prize and ran off into the shadows. If you had left the rabbit, I wouldn't be suprised it would be gone by the time you got home.
Now...the question is, what kind of Sasquach was lurking in the shadows waiting for it's decapitated meal.............?

|Blanketback||Poison was my first thought, since I know my neighbor puts poison down for rodents and I've found them dead in my yard. It freaked me out, finding all these dead mice, until I googled it and learned that the poison dehydrates them - all of them must have been taking their last steps to my little pond, because that's where I found them. Otherwise, I figured the rabbit must be healthy, since the weather is way too harsh right now for an ill animal to survive, I'd think.|

|wolfy dog||One time I was hiking in the forest when one of the dogs came out of the brush carrying a dead rabbit, his head held high and moving with this victory trot. The other dogs seemed to be in awe and so was I with this accomplishment. Then I noticed the rigor mortis in the rabbit....He "fooled" all of us. I didn't want him to eat the rabbit. Parasites, poison?|
