Try some tuna water or baked chicken bits. I assure you she won't say no to that if she's healthy. If not, vet.

That said, it's not uncommon to have eating issues for a couple of days after a change of environment or extended time away.

Did she start biting abruptly one day or has she been doing this for a a longer duration? If this isn't normal behavior for her, she may be feeling ill somehow which might require a need to take her in to the vet.

In nature life must take life in order for life to continue. So therefore in order to be in tune with nature we must raise animals, and then kill them. Like women do with their unborn children.

Hyenas deserve more respect.


"Spotted and brown hyenas live in tight-knit clans that are led by an alpha—often a female—and include lower-ranking females, males, and young. Clan size depends mostly on prey availability, ranging from 10 members in some desert-dwelling clans to around 120 animals at the resource-rich Ngorongoro and Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve, Dheer says. Such large and complicated groups make spotted hyenas “the most socially complex carnivores in the world,” Dheer adds."

This deer has taken a liking to our back yard. It seems to have a very slanted jaw and it's tongue hangs out. It's rather skinny. We want to feed it to try and bulk it up. It eats pears, but not carrots. Harder to chew I assume. Any Ideas?

Anon, don't feed ruminants like deer fruit. Ruminants are accustomed to low nutrient foods like grass and tree leaves and branches. If you feed it too much rich food it can die.

>>3054954
This picture definitely looks like chronic wasting disease. Poor thing.
>>
>>3054934
dont feed it, dont get too close, just let it hang out and try not to scare it off. it will be safer from coyotes and shit there most likely and has plenty of shrubs to eat. you can leave some fruit for it but only stuff that is native to the area, ie shit it would eat in the wild

Sounds like he's carrying lyme diseases, don't touch it

This looks a lot like CWD. Definitely give your state equivalent of a local game warden a call and see if they are tracking where it's present.

Convince me not to release some random invasive species right now.

better yet, get invasive plants to simultaneously kill entire native habitats. stack up on kudzu vines, japanese knotweeds, bamboo, honeysuckles, whatever you can get your hands on. the less native species that feed on them the better. also make sure to put zebra mussels in every lake near you. the virgins at the EPA stand no chance against the Chad environmental terrorist.

What do you guys think about PETA?

>>3054686
Even so it's more respectable on the surface than PETA.

He should have just donated to a local animal shelter or something. Bought them like $10,000 worth of food or whatever.
>>
>>3054695
PETA is a bunch of retarded housewives and hippies, neither of which understand biology let alone ecology.

while they might not be helping their ideology, what they're doing is beneficial, cats and dogs are just useless pest species and there's so many of them being born everyday that it literally doesn't matter how many are gassed or shot.

they have negative value and it's like being emotional about livestock.
>>
>>3054698
I would bet PETA has caused an increase in strays if anything
>>
>>3054709
doubt they've got any effect on it, the population is just increasing and human nature is to blame for the spread and sustenance of feral animals, if we stopped being anthropomorphising dipshits we wouldn't have to feel bad about feral animals because they wouldn't be there.

PETA doesn't do much aside from cry about animals in foreign countries without actually helping them and killing cats and dogs in an attempt to 'help' them.

OP, that's a black slug. They're omnivores, and should do fine as long kept moist and cool.
>>
Give him some unsalted animal protein from time to time too if you have some at hand.
Don't feed him grain products or just impossible tiny amounts. Even if they love it they can get bad gas from it which seems painful and can even kill snails, slugs maybe too I wouldn't try it.
