I think it is to test the owners training and loyalty- they want to know if you will still let them give you kisses.

Lots of animals do that. Cant say for most-but very young animals will do that for the good digestive enzymes and bacteria-plus certain vitamin and trace mineral content-to ingest it into their new system. Very young foals will do that-but ony for a few days after being born. Also elephants.Maybe more,but I am not savvy on them.

Bears will do that-and other varmints too.

Doggies will eat and or roll in anything. sick Much as I love them-

Some articles I have been asked to illustrate include the scat of the animal type the trapper wants to target. I did an illustration for Trappers Post not long ago that was on just that subject-a coyote trap set in a corn stubble row-with other yote "stuff" on the ground as an attractant.

Interesting question.You are on to something-

My dog once bit a lawyer on the ankle. Right away the dog found a fresh cat turd and ate it. I am sure he was trying to get the bad taste out of his mouth.

I've never tried using domestic cat turds at any sets, so I have no clue if it works or not. But I do have a bobcat at home that lives in the house with me that I only feed raw meat, rabbits, chickens, venison, birds ect... And his turds smell nothing like meow mix turds! sick

They say because they taste so good.

Not really, it is because they lack the proper nutrients in their bodies, low on certain minerals and victims, at least that's what Iíve heard. Almost like the study over in England as to why some humans eat buggers, the conclusion is that they do that to make up for the lack certain nutrients, yuck.

i saw a place along a crick where there was alot of sand. domestic cats had been obviously using the sand patch as a littter pan.

there were a couple strange dogs hangin around the patch..no idea why and jerrys dogs went straight over and started sniffing like crazy.

they didnt eat anything, i called em off for they had a chance cause i didint wanna smell cat crap breath the rest of the day but they were definitely very interested in the area where the cat sign was the heaviest.

I'd always take the litter box (scent free litter) when I went to AZ many years ago and used the turds at my sets. It sure did not hurt anything using it!!

A few years ago I used some used cat litter for an experiment. Set some out and put a trail cam on it. Coyotes and bobcats both seemed to like it. Used some on a cat set once, didn't catch a cat. But to be fair I didn't see any tracks around the set at all so it was an inconclusive experiment.

35 years ago we lived in a lil singlewide
with a mean cat. One night I watched the
hussey in the litter box while sitting on
the couch. Got me a zip lock baggie and put
some turds in it. Wife was sure I'd slipped
over the edge! Next day I made a poop mound
set and caught a cat first night. Another in
3 or 4 more days. Caught a bunch more that
way since. Darned little chance of a non-target
in it too. Can catch cats around rabbit hunters.

Dogs eating cat turds, will contract tapeworm.
The area around the dogs anus will have little segments that look like wood shavings,which are segments of the tapeworm.

My wifes new ankle biter eats her own turds. Will even bring one back to show and let you watch. Son's lab likes rabbit turds snuffs them up like coco puffs. We ask the vet about it when we had the anlke biter in for shots. Basically he said he had no idea why dog eat turds other than some dogs just like them. So I guess that just puts dogs on the same level with some people I've met in my life.

Our little [Please excuse my language... I'm an idiot]-zu goes for bigger game. Loves deer pellets and hunts for them every time we go on a walk. If he finds good soft fresh ones he rolls all over them and then I get scoulded by my lovely wife because he has to have a bath. usually happens any time we are in a hurry to get some place.

I had one dog years ago that would eat cat poop quicker than the cat could get it out. He followed that cat all over the yard just waiting for a warm snack. He loved that cat.

I would suspect they eat cat poop for the same reason they like to roll in anything rotten. My wife's Shih-Tsu is notorious for rolling in anything rotten. He prefers maggot-infested, rotten carp, but will settle for anything that would make the average person lose their lunch.

Now I'm thinking of getting a heard of cats.


You can't take my lab mushroom hunting. She eats them. When you see her stop to eat, you gotta hurry over to her. Sometimes she gives them back to me on my truck seat.

But no cat turds.
