Wonderful idea! Thank you!

In a sense, I already have that with zombie turkeys. They're almost impossible to kill, they are super strong, and they get stronger each time they're killed.

But I continue the idea in My Undead Mother-in-law with zombie corgies, and bulls. Then I also add cyborg animals. Then there is much more in Paranormal Privateers.

Nonetheless, your idea is worth exploring further in fiction. Ideas are the most valuable asset an author has!(less)
