Less smart animals don't really think. They are more like of an computer, or elevator controller (except they won't stop working in case of error), mostly consist of pre-programmed algorithms with some room for adaptation and self-learning.
Smarter animals tend to come not as pre-programmed, but have a lot more adaptation and self-learning abilities. Some birds, for example. Their program is so basic, they get confused if humans raise them and they will try to fuck humans. While other, less smart animals, like cats, would want to fuck cat in all cases, because they are hard-wired to do so.

Seagulls definitely feel the opposite.
Since seagulls have no penises, they probably compete in amount of shitted objects.

>Why?
Rabies vaccine hasn't been proven effective on them mostly because they're not popular pets so there's no urgency in testing it. A pet that can't be vaccinated for rabies is illegal in a lot of places. There's also the problem of faggots like this one-
>>3114349
poaching foxes from the wild to keep and fuck illegally.
>>
>>3116432
It's the name of the species. Wild red foxes are red, but we've bred them to have all sorts of colors, mostly for fur farms. It's like wild rabbits are always uniform brown, but tame rabbits come in several coat patterns and colors.

foxes will piss all over everything and everywhere. even in your morning coffee.

>>3114323
They've a wider diet so it could be a coin toss whether or not they'd be easy or expensive. I'd argue that the only guaranteed heavy financial hit would be the pre and post hibernation bulk.
>>
>>3116437
>Rabies vaccine hasn't been proven effective on them
They got rid of rabies in middle europe by vaccinating wild foxes, but I guess to use that one privately is too expensive or there isn't the required amount of studies to back it up.

I know that America has been somewhat decent about their conversation of animals like manatees, Yellowstone grizzly, crocodiles, and so on. India is doing the same, amazingly. What could be done to make South America and Africa keep up the pace? What can be done beyond total war to make them stop exterminating species for fun?

you have no clue how things work. On federal lands states do manage wildlife, but according to federal laws. The state can't make a more restrictive law for federal lands.

so when the Feds loosen protections the states can't do anything about it. It will absolutely have an effect, lots of effects really.

I was given this dog(female) three days ago.
She was neutered 4 days ago.
Today she fought me because she is an idiot and she didn't want her antibiotic pill with/or food and she didnt want her wound touched. I think either she somewhat dislodged her dehiscence at that moment or she got infected (she doesnt want to eat the pills). After she was very uncomfortable today all the morning, then she became very quiet.
She was so well yesterday, she walked for 15-20 minutes 2-3 times and she felt/seemed very happy.
Today she didnt even want to walk, eat or drink and she is just laying quietly and moreso breathing openmouthed.
We noticed some small clot on the floor (very small, nothing worrying) today and a few droplets of blood. The external wound looks ok (she opens legs when I caress her), but I think her inner/vaginal wound might not be going well.
I have been caressing her.
Im very worried. I have considered making my part and giving her some water from my hand.
>take her back to the (((vet)))
Sorry. Too expensive. I dont want to consider for now.
(The thing is: I love my new dog. But I think the dog doesnt need another surgery. She just needs antibiotics, water and rest. I have some knowledge, I got abdominal surgery once and she definitely doesnt look like she is broken inside. But I need advice because Im not so sure as she doesnt look like she is improving. (Also she did this to herself, why should I pay an extra?).

>it's too expensive

My distance x-ray vision says she's okay, just a little pain. If you trust me or a vet that scams you by using 'technology' you have to decide on your own.
>>
>>3114748
>postneutering advice
The one I got was watching my pet closely and when it doesn't behave normally after the effects of sedation vanished, shows signs of pain or leaks fluids take it to the vet if you want to make sure nothing important ripped or to give it more pain medication. Waiting works too, you just might not like the result.
Follow up care is free at my vet btw. at yours it might be too. Calling and asking certainly is.

Also general pet care advice: start saving for an emergency fund asap or get insurance. You don't want to give away your pet or watch it suffer or die just because of a little fixable issue.

The pill will still taste like shit in water, you need to coat it. Even I go full baby and ask the doctors for coated antibiotics since others make me gag. If she hates pills even while hidden in tasty sausage pieces you can ask the vet for longterm Injections.
>>
>>3115010
Pill pockets and cheese still exist. If not above anons advise for sticking the the pill on the back of the tounge works. If you can't handle that find a new home for the dog.
>>
The dog condition has improved.
She now eats (mixed foie for dogs with raw hard dog food).
The wound is not oozing or bleeding.
We have not found clots or anything.
She is slowly improving.

I absolutely hate walking my dog for this reason. No matter what he starts whining and freaking out at other dogs, hes G Shep/ Collie btw. On the rare occasion hes in a confined space with other dogs, my neighbors pits for example, he acts like a traumatized inmate and starts fucking attacking them after crying and whining. He has zero problems with humans, tends to either accept our cats' (they adopted while I was gone, I wouldve put up a fight) abuse or fucking chases them around the house until my mom freaks out. Is he retarded? Is it bc he was neutered early in life? Should we have introduced him to other dogs earlier? Hes 13ish so hell be gone soon but as his favorite human i feel an obligation to try to help him make dog friends
>>
Sounds like you bought a large, intelligent breed puppy without doing any research and now you have a large troubled neurotic unsocialized dog
Congratulations, retard

The dog has been socially fucked in his early life. I know dogs like these, and my dog was a bit like that too. From your post I have a feeling there's no point in trying to train him now. It's better to think ahead and try to avoid the situations that stress him.
>as his favorite human i feel an obligation to try to help him make dog friends
That's sweet, but know that he has a friend in you and I'm sure you're making up for no doggy friends.

I had a gerbil that was just like this, we named him Frodo and he was a tremendous faggot. He couldn't let go of his mother and we ended up keeping him together with the females for longer than necessary. When we tried to move him to the males, he would whine like a retard ALL THE TIME. They ignored him, and when they walked past him (he was very stationary), he would go into squeaking frenzy like a massive faggot. His dad Pepper brought him a banana. No, he started squeaking like he was about to die. You could tell he was scared of everything. We tried to introduce him to the cage slowly but it didn't work. When I was watching his behavior, it made me mad. Stop squeaking you little cunt, what the fuck are you afraid of?

Exactly this. Too many people get smart dog breeds but do nothing to work their brain. Your dog is literally a neet that cannot handle social interactions with those similar to him because you deprived him of seeing other dogs at young age. Op ist eine Dummkopfhacke.
>>
>>3116229

Sounds like it's his parents fault. You can't expect a child too be smart enough to take care of a dog without guidance.
