GTA 5 Animals

Last Edited by TreeFitty February 05, 2015 : 231 Comments : 425,567 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.

    Snakes would add some dimention to the desert! A Horse, a horse, of course, would be PHENOMINAL!

    Why cant we collect the animals carcasses like in rdr and sell them. Seems pretty pointless to kill them for what the heck fun of it. Heres a good question why arent any of the cluckin bells or burger shots open to buy some food. They added gas station food. Good grief this is what next gen brings. Even gta iv had restaurants you could go grab a burger at. We're looking for realism here. You got this huge city and you cant go into very many buildings and how about fixing the one closed ride at the pier.
