Yes, please fix the animals! Deer and wolves are primarily nocturnal creatures and boar, if threatened are likely to charge and try and kill you! Wolves are generally pack animals and I’d advise against poking a bear with a spear, you’re only going to make it angry!
As for the OP who didn’t want any BS about them being fast, humans have an average top speed of about 16mph (usain bolt nearly 28mph). Deer can reach 30mph over short distances, wolves can reach 40mph, bear’s can hit 35mph so too can wild boar!
The thing that annoys me a little is that their awareness of you in Rust is either 0 or 100%, no middle ground, no hiding behind cover or stealth tactics. The harvesting of meat also makes me chuckle, anyone whose ever had to carry a kill off a hillside will also find this hilarious
In game though they are easy enough to kill, you just have to hope they don’t run through a rock or building which they currently do or the up and down hillsides (that actually has a bonus as you don’t have to run as far!).
Chicken’s are your best bet clefreduli.
