In the last three days Jess has found : a dead seal (I'm gonna have to call Natural resourses to have this removed) , a dead seagull (in the water) and the prize today : a turkey carcass (cooked) at a local park. Every time he finds a dead thing he does his ritualistic rolling over the body. They have to have been dead for a while and really stinky. I know a lot of dogs do this but I keep wondering ..why. My theory is it gives them the smell of a killer, thus making them more frightening to predators. Any ideas?
