I feed my dog regularly, so he isn't malnurished... and he is a Blue Heeler, a herding breed. He isn't just killing to kill...because he does eat the whole bird. Could he be lacking a vitamin?Answer Question
She wasn't asking about destructive dogs, she was asking about a dog that kills and eats birds.
I think he does it because he can--it's an unusual ability for a dog. Most dogs will chase birds, but most can't catch them. He eats them because, again, that's what dogs do. They hunt and catch prey, then they have a fresh, warm hunk of meat--they eat it. Since he is eating wild prey he catches, you might ask your vet about worms and parasites he may contract.
