Animals can be found all around Chernarus, with each type of animal having its preferred areas to roam. After an animal is killed and skinned, it drops several types of meat and items, which can be used for multiple purposes.

Stalk your prey once you wound it. Animals also bleed to death if they have open wounds (animals don’t have a bleed animation, but they do bleed). Predators don’t seem to have this mechanic.
