I would like to create a public service campaign on the danger of throwing your chicken bones on the ground outside. For one thing they attract rats and other pests to the areas you throw them - sometimes right in front of your own home. But the reason that I hate them and detest those who thoughtless discard them in our neighborhood is because of my dogs. Dogs love nothing more then the smell of meat and a bone - but these cooked bones can splinter and tear up the insides of the dog causing death or if you're lucky a very expensive surgery. That is why I spend most of my dog walking this time of year saying "drop it" or "leave it" and if they get one before I can respond I then get to stick my hand in their mouth and remove it.
So, even if you don't care about your neighbors or neighbors' dogs maybe you might care about attracting rats and other vermin to your house.
