What types of strategies would go into combating zombified animals? All creatures could now be a threat and even the once gentle herbavories have become bloodthirsty killers. Bambi is now after your blood... how do we fight back?

No guarantee that animals would zombify at all. It'd have to be a pretty damn impressive virus to have universal effects. I'd be more worried about the pig I just killed for meat being a carrier.

Still, I'd deal with undead beasties just the same way as an undead person. Not much else you can do, really.

There are viruses that have several hosts, like the flu's human-pig-bird range, or rabies that can infect dozens of different mammals. And then, why a virus? Why not bacteria? Why should only viruses get to be the cause of zombies? Sure, they're stranger, but in the end actually living parasites are more versatile - supporting the metabolic functions of an undead host would be a lot easier to a parasite that has its own metabolism than to one that relies on hijacking a living cell.

As to how I'd handle it myself, I'd try to avoid them as much as possible. Take shelter in the tallest building I can find and hope zombie rats won't think about climbing all the way up. Keep doors closed, and inspect fake ceilings and other potential ways of entry. I assume that large zombified animals wouldn't be too stealthy so I'm not worried about them, but a mouse or a bat can easily go unnoticed. I can't stay out of their reach all the time, but at least I can make sure they won't get to me while I sleep.

Yeah... that'd suck.

I would hope that it would just affect mammals, but even then that's a lot of things to worry about. I think some animals you would take down like a wolf or something, but like things like an elephant are just too big. I think it would be harder to avoid them since most animals have better senses than humans and could detect us easier.

So, yeah, we'd be fucked.

Zombie fungi...there's a rather novel concept, and probably the best natural variant to zombification I've heard of for a time.

So, who wants to take bets on how long until one of the scientists gets infected?

Even with viruses that cross species like bird flu, the symptoms seen from each species can vary greatly. So for a zombie virus, it could zombify certain animals, they could just be carriers, they could have completely unpredictable symptoms like just vomiting, or they could simply just die from it.
That being said, I maintain that for anything the size of a deer and smaller, a shotgun would do dandy. Anything bigger, and I probably won't be sticking around to try to kill it.
Imagine trying to take down a zombie GORILLA. That's terrifying, imo. Bastards can take shotgun blasts even BEFORE they were zombiefied.

It's a wild hamster. They are very aggresive, as you may have noticed:P They are so aggresive that usually even after sex male and female might fight.
