GTA 5 Animals

Last Edited by TreeFitty September 13, 2014 : 187 Comments : 247,084 Views

Red Dead Redemption featured a wide array of animals small and large. It seemed only right for some of those animals to return to Grand Theft Auto V since the game features a functioning ecosystem teeming with wildlife. What animals can we turn into roadkill? Check out a list below...


Butterflies can be seen flying around gardens or other flower-filled areas.

The PC/PS4/Xb1 version of GTA V includes cats.

Cluckin' Bell get's their food from somewhere. Chickens can be found around villages or small farms in Blaine County.

GTA 5 Cormorants


Creeping around the mountains, their growl still brings fear to the most heavily armed assassin.

GTA 5 Cougars


Scavenging food in the open areas of Blaine County and wander into towns at times. Run in packs of three.

GTA 5 Coyotes


Cows can be found around the farms outside Los Santos. iGTA5

A group of crows is called a murder. Keep that in mind.

GTA 5 Crows


Rottweilers (standard or mix with brown fur) and labradors keep residents of the area company and offer protection. The PC/PS4/Xb1 version of GTA V adds a pug and border collie to the mix and possibly more breeds.

GTA 5 Dogs

Elk (Deer)

Prancing around the woods and open grass areas of the countryside. Usually grouped in fours.

GTA 5 Elks/Deer


There are various types of fish swimming around the waters of Los Santos and Blaine County.

GTA 5 Fish


Gliding through the air in Blaine County looking for a quick meal. iGTA5

GTA 5 Hawks

Killer Whales

Coming to the oceans of the PC/PS4/Xb1 version of GTA V.


These appear in a few spots during the story and in other entertainment options.

GTA 5 Monkeys


Oink, oink! Pigs can be found around some farms outside Los Santos.

GTA 5 Pigs


Scurrying around all over the place. You can walk right by them without noticing.

GTA 5 Rats


Seagulls can be found pretty much anywhere there's a lot water. Especially the coastlines.

GTA 5 Seagulls


Great Whites roam the ocean plus Hammerheads in the PC/PS4/Xb1 versions of the game. Don't be exposed in open water for too long or else they'll come find you.

GTA 5 Sharks

Wild Boars

This elusive animal can be found in hilly areas of Blaine County, usually in dirt covered parts.

In addition to these creatures you may also come across aliens in a few places during the game and even a sasquatch.

    It's possible they added bears for the new-gen (and hopefully as additional content for old-gen). We'll have to wait and see.

    It would be SO awesome to include fishing mini games in gta. Still don't understand how there can be THAT MUCH WATER and absolutely NO fishing or water skiing or anything else water related. Why add fish if they can't be caught or interacted with? Spear fishing is another option. I'd love to buy a harpoon from Ammu nation

    No. Only Franklin takes ownership of a dog.

    Theirs also some kind of wild cat in the Blaine county area. A cougar or somethin. I crashed on a Sanchez motorbike and I was goin to retrieve it. I was on a hill and it jumped on me and killed me.

    Rideable horses would make the game even more awesome. How fun would it be to fire RPGs from a back of a horse, seriously?
  • Tori.love (Guest) April 11, 2014
    Lots of animals would be fun but horses would definitely make things much more enjoyable. What is the point of the "out west" feel of where Trevor is from without horses? The farms are kind of boring as well without them. If you have the time for aliens and Sasquatch then why not take a little bit of additional time to add some horses?
  • horses please (Guest) April 06, 2014
    I think horses would be a great add on for gta cus players could use them for transport or even to win money at the racetrack. Also what is the point of having a racetrack and stables in the gamue if there are nonohorses? I would love to own a horse and I know that a lot of other players would love to have horses added. It would also be great if you could own pets such as dogs so you can race them aswell and get money.
