So that's why he kept that rabbit handy:

Add's another line of risk: now we know that hippo won't just chomp and stomp you, he may swallow you

Somebody wrote a book about horses that do that, 'Deadly Equines'. Heh. I've been planning to start riding again. Maybe I should reconsider. As if falling off wasn't bad enough now I may also start wondering what exactly the animal is planning to do when it does something like nuzzles my jacket. :D

When I was just out of high School, I lived with my Aunt and Uncle. They lived next door to "Gentleman Farmer" who raised Brahma cattle as pets, not meat. I and a friend used to toss "sail rabbits", ones that had been run over and flattened on the asphalt road, into the brahma's pasture. The sail rabbits didn't last ten minutes. The cows came running over to get 'em.

I've seen ground squirrels eating roadkill (their own, as a matte of fact); never observed it in deer.
