Can carnivores digest bone?

    Carnivores can digest bone up to a certain extent.  Many carnivorous animals eat the bones along with the flesh and generally they are broken down by stomach acids.  Some owls are known to cast bones after they have eaten their prey.

    Apparently, to a certain extent carnivores can digest bone.  The strong stomach acids are designed to break down meat and bone for the carnivore’s lifestyle.  Owls, for example, will regurgitate their prey’s fur and bones but the bones are slightly dissolved from the acids that initiate digestion.  With smaller pieces of bone, and perhaps a larger carnivore, the digestion would be more thorough.
