Spoiler - the main dog, Beast, is shot while roaming loose on a turkey ranch. The shooting itself happens off-screen, but you see her body afterward. She leaves behind a litter of puppies, which are still alive at the end.

A deer is killed in a road collision. You see the body of the deer in the aftermath. We also hear that a turkey was killed by a dog, although this does not happen onscreen.

A dead dog and a dead deer. Some scenes take place on a turkey ranch and involve the processing of turkey meat, but you do not see anything too graphic.

It’s implied that some of the native girls the turkey farmer has sex with may be on drugs, minors, or financially desperate

Matho hits a deer and crashes his car when he’s drunk-driving with his friends. Nobody is badly hurt
