Animals, pets, during buggin in and buggin out.
So a good question is, if you have a dog, or cat, or bird, what do you do if it is making too much noise, you see, my Chihuahua dog would have to go, because you can't draw attention of any kind when bugging in or out. Tell me what yall thnk.
Attack Dogs or Other Animals
Would you train a large dog or some other big animal to attack zombies? Or would you be afraid they would become zombified and just be another ammo-sponge?

Parts of Animals
So I was thinking recently, and I realised that when you kill an animal, eg a deer. you just skin it and take its meat.
So What do you do with the rest of the carcass? I know that you can Tan the hide and cook the meat. but what about the bones, and i guess you could eat the organs, but I heard that you can turn a pig's bladder into a football (pretty irrelevant but whatever).
Just wondering if there are any useful things to do with the entire animal.

zombie animals 10x greater threat than humans
in all the zombie movies, books, ect. out there, only a relatively small portion have the animals get infected, but an even smaller portion pays attention to them at all beyond a couple dogs.
however, i get the feeling(and when i get these types of feelings, they're always right and have even saved my life a few times) that when the z-virus hits, all creatures in the mammal family will be vulnerable(for those of you who are like "not a big deal", learn what kind of animals are in the mammal family, then go check your pants because you probably just crapped yourself.)
zombie dogs and wolves have an acute sence of smell that they can track you down with, zombie rodents can easily infiltrate regular defences, zombie bats... fly and will be a pain in the @ss, zombie dolphins and whales will spread it to all four corners of the earth, and then*gulp* dare i say it... zombie bears!(self explanitory)
as you can tell, zombie humans, while still very dangerous, will be only a small problem compared to the animals. also, i know alot of you are wondering how the z-virus will go international, but after reading this, you should ask yourself how it couldn't.

I know animals have a wide range of uses but are any of them really that important after Z Day? Like i was just wondering, what are some relistic uses of animals say dogs, cats, birds? Could we use them for weapons? Communication? Or should we just abandon out furry friends?
I own 3 dogs myself and was wondering what to do with them after Z Day..
ANY feedback is welcomed and is needed

summer and hot climates survival.
It occurred to me that people are talking about winters effects on zombies,but what about summer.
Well would zeds dry out if they are in the sun for to long.
The obvious problem is water, i will be keeping the water that i could get in bottles since at some point the water from taps will run dry.
the extra hours of light will be an advantage to searching for longer, but at least there is a chance zeds will be dried out and possibly dry out and die.
I feel it is possible simply due to the simple fact that they don't have the mental capacity to go into shade or take in fluids.
The virus( if it is caused by one) is a problem. Does the virus just affect humans or animals as well, if so the dead bodies will be likely to be eaten by the wild animals and then they will probably attack survivors.
However i will still follow the survival strategies for radioactive fallout, which basically states you stay in a secure building, drink water that is bottled( as much as you can) and have tinned/ mre food supplies.
I would also suggest that no one leave or move around outside at night were they would have a hard time to see zeds, unlike the zeds who will spot you before it is spotted by you.
This thread is for people who wish to be on the move. Lets say someone brings there cat and dog with them will you let them keep them as the leader of the group???

True Story: Hometown Disaster
One night while coming home from work, I had stopped at a red light and noticed a funny looking man to my right walking down a side street. Curiosity geared and ready to go, I watched him through what I'm sure was more light changes than any normal p

Dont be ignorant. Animals would immediatly recognise the infected flesh and reject it. Crows and other scavangers might not even eat the meat because when animals regonize a threat they bolt out in the opposite direction. And if a scavanger were to eat a "dead" zombie the flesh would be too toxic and would kill them anyways. Animals are smart dont forget it...

StrykerPez you are on to something
StrykerPez: Look at rabies. Dogs, cats, rodents, humans... However, I think that the virus would have to target a specific part of the human brain and therefore only be carried in other mammals. A dog infected with the Z-virus would show no signs of infection, yet if the dog bit a human, then the human would turn. Now i beleive this virus is going to be a mutation off of something man made probly a attempt to cure cancer or something for example http://dsc.discovery.com/news/2008/03/10/virus-brain-cancer-02.html the VSV virus which is related to Rabies.....that shows a great deal of how the closet thing out right now to being the virus is related to something that is cross species....the sad fact is in real life if it is a virus they are going to be able to run and they will not be dead the main proteins of the brain will break down causing them to go into their most animalistic instincts which is to feed they might even be able to communicate hunt in packs they will probly release special faramons that will show eachother that they are changed. at first they will be slow cause they will be people in their 60 or 80 dying of cancer then when the virus mutates it will get to faster stronger hosts yet the virus will effect other mamals humans are still to slow to caught them.

so this a bit un ethical to some, but placing a animale in a cage and placing it in an open area to attract zombies while you pick them off.
If you are just trying to clear out an area would you resort to this tactic?

What about animals?
What if animals could be infected? Like on Resident Evil. The dobermans and crows. That would have to come from a cross species communicable disease, and one as far reaching as that (from humans to dogs to birds), is highly unlikely (that I know of). But still, what if?
