    Stop that! That's what we are trying to get him to NOT do! LOL! My big guy actually caught a cat the other day - blasted across the yard and picked up an 8 week old kitten by the scruff of the neck to PROUDLY bring the little ball of fluff to me. I returned it to our neighbors who were in shocked silence. Their brand-new kitten had wandered over close to the property line (We have re-landscaped the front yard and the new fence hadn't been installed yet). Cyrano only had about 4 strides to travel to reach the kitten - and was probably doing about 30 mph on the 3 stride. His braking sprayed ground-cover bark for 10 feet.

    That is awesome. I guess with greyhounds the cats don't have much of a chance at an escape.

    Here's an interesting fact on greyhounds.

    In western Oklahoma many cattle ranchers keep two or more greyhounds in the back of their pickups as they drive around and though their land. If they see a coyote they stop and let the greyhounds out to chase it and at the same time get on their CBs and call their nearby fellow ranchers to tell them he spotted the coyote and where it is. Those ranchers leave what they are doing and go to let their greyhounds out to join the chase. Eventually the dogs hem and close in on the coyote and kill it.

    Im not making any type of judgment call on this, just mentioning one way they are being in my neck of the woods.

    I guess Oklahoma ranchers like rabbits better than I do. I am a big fan of leaving coyotes alone (unless they start getting too bold around the house and farm yard. But then, we were farming row crops, not cows.
    One of Cyrano's litter-mates got a bit bigger than the normal greyhound - up around 105 pounds. His prey instinct was so strong he couldn't be around small dogs or cats. They finally found a home for him in (I think) Colorado - out on a ranch. One day a deer ran through the property, he jumped a 5 ft. fence (typically, greyhounds aren't very good jumpers), ran the deer down, and pulled it down for the kill. Generally, however, greyhounds are just big babies. A university study showed them to be the least agressive breed of all dogs.
