The Walking Dead Season 1 Episode 4
I really love this show. I think it’s one of the best zombie shows ever made. My only problem with it, is what happened to the dogs? Why are there no dogs and actually, why are there no pets of any kind around?
You would think, if you were hiding from zombies in the mountains and needed a sentinel of some kind, you’d want a dog. A dog, would get the job done and alert you whenever a zombie or something was approaching.
Unlike a human, a dog would be able to both feel and smell the zombies as they approached. Besides, a dog would go to bat for you. Maybe that’s what happened to them?
Regardless, I’d like to know what happened to the pets?
Did the zombies all eat them?
We know that there are still animals around since Darrell goes out hunting for squirrels and deer and other animals.
I’m comfortable accepting that most of the cattle that lives in the industrial farms would’ve either died from starvation/thirst or gotten eaten. I can even be OK with chickens, pigs and other domesticated/ industrialized animals suffering the same fate.
I can’t buy that the same “got eaten or died of starvation” fate would befall our pets, other than maybe our pet fish.
Throughout the whole show, we’ve only seen one domesticated animal. A horse, that got eaten when Rick rode into Atlanta.
I just would really like to know what happened to the other animals.
And another thing, I know it’s been 107 days since the wildfire event but a lot of those canned and processed goods and what have you that are in supermarkets can stay good for a very long time. So why aren’t these people eating canned food?
I would just really like to know.
