Animal disposal
« on: February 12, 2018, 07:49:26 PM »
Have a sick ewe that I can't get to eat. Dewormed, antibiotics, probiotics, nutrients, etc. whatever I could think of. Even saw a blog post about giving her a beer. Didn't work. Probably need to put her down this weekend unless she makes a big turn around.

But I have a small area and no where to bury or compost. First time in this situation.

So the question is. How and where to I dispose of her if she has to go down?

Try to give it to a place that keeps big cats, wolves, bears etc. Like an animal shelter/rescue place. They are always looking for freebies.

does she have constant runs? Have you tried pedialyte ? Buy some charcoal and see if she will eat it or burnt wood, with heavy coal on it!!

They won’t take potentially sick animals unless they’ve been diagnosed and know they’re safe to feed to their animals.

The county dump. Or pay to have her hauled to rendering.

What sort of ewe, what age? Is she drinking? Is she bred?

Ask on the trapping forum if someone wants it for bait. Might find some will take it for bobcat bait.

Drinks a little bit not much.

No runs.

Not good for feed as not sure what is wrong with her

North county cheviot cross. 4 years old not bred.

Will the dump take her ? That would be easier if needed

Pull all feed but water and hay and see what happens? Where have I heard that before...

It’s what we do with the rabbits when they’re not feeling good. Let’s them sort of flush their system out. Was wondering what Run thought of that.

Yes thats useful for sheep.
If they are drinking you usually have a chance.  When any critter quits drinking thats when it gets bad.
Not knowing if she may be pregnant could be anything.

I worked as a handler at a big cat sanctuary for a year after getting out of the army, most places wont take livestock from a private deal anymore do to many animals getting sick and dying from medicine or chemicals for euthanizing the animal tainting the meat. You could always contact local farmers or gardeners and see if they would want the carcass for compost or ask for a place to bury it if theu have the land.
Practical accuracy and a packable rifle.
Blued steel and walnut is always better.
