Description

How about some wild dogs that hunt players or zombified dogs and other animals (would love to get attacked by a zombie cow or chicken lol)

History

Naah!..
As a player i 'll hate to see 'Zombie dogs' but..
..in a post-apocalyptic world probably random packs of dogs will look for
'fresh meat' (players or ambient animals) but.. (!!)..
..this brings the trouble of co-existence with wild dog packs+zombies

:/

I m failing to see a 'believable' result

Yeah that's what I'm saying.. packs of wild (but normal) dogs or wolves to deal with.

As it is right now, the wilderness is pretty safe. Dogs, wolves, and even bears would be cool to deal with from time to time.

Plus they can be another source of food.

Yea but something that doesn't 'fit' right is..
The spawning system sometimes will spawn zombie pack + wild dog/wolf pack at close (or VERY close)
proximity.
So..
What will be the *expected behavior among them?
1)If Zombies attacking alive/worm blood organisms..-scenario should make them attack Dogs also.
2)Wild (+hungry) animals should attack Zombies also (fresh meat or no=possible food)

Logical conclusion eeh? :/

Well we could assume dogs and other wild animals might just naturally avoid zombies - maybe they fear them or instinctively know that the meat is infected or otherwise dangerous to eat.

But I really don't have any problem with zombies attacking dogs or vice versa I think it would create interesting situations :)

But perhaps dogs/wolves could be made to spawn only in wilderness areas.
