Hmm.. Not totally sure... Well pigs and goats are herbivores, I think survival is pretty much covered for them. Cats can become feral, but they only survive in our cities from garbage, with the rare exception.
Animals are all different- for example it will take a dog pack several generations to revert to pariah state. It's quite fascinating, a pack of any group of dogs, will pretty quickly revert to a medium sized, light brown animal.
Shaina I wouldn't do it. By that age the meat is really nasty. We had old hen, she was about 3 years, I couldn't even chew the meat. Chickens usually slaughter at 2-3 months. The pigs we buy are usually only a few months old as well.
taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.
