Hi - I've had my grey for 1 year 4 months and for the first time he killed a rabbit in the backyard. He didn't eat it but tried to bring it back in the house. He left it outside after a bit and came back in. My concern is actually for my indoor cat which has never been a problem. In fact they play a bit -the cat is actually more aggressive than the dog. But now I'm nervous that something bad will happen at night when they are together.
Jack has discovered mice. The recent cold snap got the local mice running into the neighbour's pile of hedge clippings. Hound heard them/saw them rustling about and went into Greyhound Predator Mode-- it took a very firm 'LEAVE IT NOW' to get his attention prised away from his potential prey. Now, for most wildlife, I am very firm with Jack that hunting season is closed, and he does listen to me about leaving the squirrels and bunnies alone (albeit with an exaggerated HUFFF or a big sigh ). However, I do NOT want mice in my flat, which is a ground-floor flat with nearby bushes plus the neighbour's brush-pile, and would be happy if he 'dealt with' any mice which got inside. My mum's dogs (all huskies) have all been mousers, which my mum encouraged as we lived in an area with a major mouse problem, but unfortunately also took this as license to hunt all kinds of other small things, including birds (!!!). Anyone have similar experiences/thoughts?
