I know digesting fish bone is easily done, but I can't seem to find any info regarding what happens if bones from say, deer, cow, chicken, turkey, etc are ingested. I'm curious because I find deer antlers (bone) in the woods & field by our house always chewn-on and our dog just eats bone from leftover steaks. I wonder why animals can do this, yet humans don't. Is it because there are easier ways for humans to get the nutrients that bones provide, or because we simply can't digest it. In this case, will it simply linger in our stomach for...ever?
