Virtual James 7 bats are in tall trees, only at night, therefore very hard to see. and ducks are always flying around lake don julio, so you never actually see one up close

Curtieson Also, this can not be done in Free Roam.

There are not Buffalo and there are not Wild Horses in free roam.

Invader Phlegm A bit of clarification about the list of animals in this solution.

WILD Horses.

I have been trying for so long to get this Achievement, killed everything that moved in the game, and could figure out why the cheevo hadn't popped for me.

Then it finally occurred to me, the list said WILD horses . . . not just horses.

Over the course of the game, I have killed almost as many horses as enemies (killing their horses makes dealing with enemies much easier), but I had never once killed a single WILD horse.

Every time I had come across horses in the wild, I either broke them, or left them alone - never occurred to me to kill any of them - even though I had endless fun making grizzlies, bison and bald eagles the endangered species they are today.

Once I figured out my error, and headed out and killed my first wild horse, the Achievement popped.

So for clarification on this list of animals for those of you who may not be getting this Achievement, but have been trying hard to get it. Make sure you get at least one wild horse in your anti-Peta killing spree across the Old West.

techie76 i would like to add my worth is that i did'nt kill a skunk but still got it ? (i am guessing that it has to be 26 different animals) also i killed a jackalope which is not on the list

Nordegarde I never killed a duck and still the achievement popped after I got a kill in 26 wild animal species even though, overall, I killed animals from 30 different species (so domesticated animals don't count).
