    This raises the risk for Chronic Wasting Disease
    (deer form of Mad Cow Disease) as well as trichinae
    parasites from venison.

    They also eat eggs from birds' nests and other deer.

    They usually keep them to themselves.

    Doesn't surprise me.

    Most horses will gladly eat cooked meat and I knew one that would run
    down, kill and eat rabbits.

    People have some rather fixed ideas about herbivores, omnivores and
    carnivores. Those animals have evolved to optimize a certain diet. In
    truth, all of them will eat anything they can. I've kept a few tropical
    fish for several decades (not always, and certainly not the same fish).
    They are classified by diet, but there is always this caution: it
    doesn't matter how much of a herbivore a fish is, if it can fit a
    smaller fish in its mouth, it's food.
