I'm just wondering what your thoughts are on stumbling across a bone while out playing at the lake? I take Po frequently to a 300+ acre farm (recently sold for development and now awaiting -- like all of us -- economic improvement) in East Tennessee and he routinely bursts from the brush with a deer leg or a cow femur or something of the like.
I've been confiscating them ... but do I need to? Are they harmful?
I think that if the bones have been around for awhile they get brittle and potentially could splinter, causing some potentially bad gastrointestinal problems. Also, if there is really rotten meat on them it may cause barfing when you least enjoy it.
sounds like a good band name!Originally Posted by Belles mom
I'm sort of in the "better safe than sorry" camp, so I would take them away.
