Re: The Walking Dead Season 3
On the way to work this morning I stopped at the gas station and I saw a dog sitting in a pickup truck next to me. I'm not a pet owner so it hadn't occured to me until seeing the dog and rewatching last week's episode last night
But there is a complete lack of animals on the show - other than the walkers eating a stray deer. Not even in Woodbury are there pets. What happened to all of the dogs and cats? Did the zombies eat all of them?
Also seeing the dog this morning it occured to me that trained attack dogs might be a great defense against the zombies
My guess is as food supplies began running low, domesticated animals like dogs and cats were the first to go. I am sure there were people who were hesitant about eating fluffy, but the need to survive would win out every time.
Plus dogs barking would be like babies crying. It's ringing the dinner bell for walkers.
