Sorry it's been busy here, my cage is a 5 story ferret cage, (37"h x 24" w x 36" d)so I don't this space was the issue.
There were severe wounds on Zuch, and Porkavian (Truffle & Jacob also have lesser wounds but are doing well).
I'd gone over to give the boys a treat, some boiled chicken & sweet potatoes, Vinnie came first, as he most often does, the others came to get some goodies, Sesshomaru came over, let me scratch his head, then ran off to enjoy his snatched treat, then went up two whole levels, grabbed Guiness by the back of the neck, tossed him down a level, ran down after him, flipped him over, and bit/tore his throat open, it all happened so quickly, it was weird, he then just went on about his business. Even when I opened one of the upper doors, he came over to get a scritch. The attack seemed (to me anyways) unprovoked. Sesshomaru had been pushing around the other guys for about a week though, since Vinnie is getting older and starting to let his "duties" as Alpha slack.
I did call Dr. Mac-he told me that all in all he appeared healthy, even though he was slightly overweight. Nothing like that has ever happened here before, and thankfully not since.
