Why are there so many rats in the ground?

monkwarrior The ground looks like it has a lot of manure, so it was probably a feedlot. The abundance of feed attracts rats, which then dig burrows.  

There's another guy on Youtube that hunts them in feedlots and chicken coops with minks and a Lurcher.

stevopusser also looks like it was recently tilled and loose which would make it idea for burrowing in.

This is exactly why dogs love squeaky toys (the sound of their prey squealing as it's being killed) and why they shake their toys so vigorously (to snap the necks of their prey).

monkwarrior Monk, I'm going to err on the side of caution here; while it may seem small, I'm going to have to ask you to remove this comment as it contains another user's personal information. That is in direct violation of 2) Prohibited Activities (5).
I understand deleting your comment will remove this one and jclv's, and that's okay for this instance.

Thanks for understanding.

monkwarrior I figured it was innocent enough. But like I said, I'd rather err on the side of caution.

Thank you, though!

andy_bart "god i hate pussies."
I love pussies.
You seem to be offended by the warning. I am sure that daegog did not intend to offend anyone. Fortunately, you know how to fix that.

andy_bart Well the thing is, we have some Furry Rodent types running around here on IAB and they might be a tad miffed watching their country cousins get slaughtered gleefully by a pack of farm dogs.

Some dogs are absolute experts - others, sometimes from the same litter are scared of rats- but they make quick work of it. As far as rat killing can be, this is humane- its a shame there isn't an equivalent killer for humans- sadly we out witted the ones we had.

Gerry1of1 It seems post-decapitation conciouness was a thing.

LordJim   Possibly, but with the spinal cord severed there
would be no pain.  That sounds humane to me.

Gerry1of1 That was the theory behind it. Mr Guillotine was in fact opposed to the death penalty but supported this new invention ( not his ) because it was more humane than strangle-hanging. He hated that his name was associated with it.

Personally I think a bullet in the back of the head is the most humane. But I am not an expert.

woodyville06   If breaking your neck causes instantaneous death
then surely severing it does as well.

Gerry1of1 I think the general concensus is that a quick, clean decapitation would leave you with up to five seconds of awareness. One. Two. Three. Four. Five.

But the the guillotine was also also a very heavy block of wood with a metal sharp bit, so would probably render you unconcious by the force of the blow. There are gruesome anecdotes but in general decapitation is not really instant.

Gerry1of1 I don’t think so.  There is no reason that decapitation itself would cause instantaneous death - the brain would function until the blood runs out.  It seems it would be the same as severe strangulation where the person blacks out about 3 seconds after blood is cutofff.

Any doctors on IAB care to comment?

woodyville06 I seem to remember that one of the last to be executed in this way - a serial killer - was very excited at the idea that he would hear his own blood gush from his neck.

scheckydamon I would imagine they are not as diseased and filthy as city rats, probably pretty good eats for some of those dogs.

daegog Yea, field rats, farm critters, tend to be cleaner than other versions of them.  I like the furry tailed variety myself. Sorry Squrlz, just the facts.

Alas, my late terrier lacked the killer instict. She was fine going into cover to make the bunnies break for my mate's lurcher. So that's a share. But she never killed. I don't know why, plenty of opportunity.
