I posted months ago about Buddy eating a bandage off his foot, well yesterday he was munching on a bunny, I am not sure how much of it he ate or even if he killed it but when I stopped him half the rabbit was gone. So my questions are, could he have eaten the skull, is there anyway to stop the killing, today he got a baby lizard (he dropped it on command and I think it will survive the brutal attack) and he has been eating, drinking and passing things although his stool is far from normal so what if anything should I be watching for as signs of potential issues?
Thanks, Michelle and Buddy aka. the killer B

There's nothing inherently wrong with Buddy eating a bunny, just watch out for potential undigested sharp bones: continued vomitting with no result, blood in the vomit; or blockage - no poops for a day or two, no interest in eating, vomitting if he does eat.
As to his "brutal attack" on a baby lizard, what did Buddy do that makes it brutal?

Yes indeed, if I was just running along enjoy the day and some giant scooped me up with his mouth and began chewing on me I would find that a bit traumatic.. I realize it is in his nature to eat the little tempting treats however judging from the lizards reaction, he was far from pleased.

Is it possible that he could completely eat a rabbit skull?

I'm pretty sure that any dog of reasonable size could eat a rabbit skull. I'm fairly certain that my dogs have eaten whole rabbit, and not had anything left over.

Thanks for this, I was not terribly worried until my boyfriend and his coworkers starting telling me that they don't think he could eat a skull and on the "Discovery channel" they just tear the flesh off the bones. Having never dealt with a dog actually eating something this size I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask.

Calvin usually "tenderizes" them first. He crunches the whole rabbit from end to end several times, then starts chewing and swallowing at the same time. Regardless of size, he doesn't leave anything - not skull, feet, or fur.
