Here is an article on why a Level 4 outbreak and subsequent Zombacalypse is unlikely. This article is somewhat flawed
They have some good points. What would YOU do if 1000 grizzlies showed up in your town? Sure the bear will get some people, but I don’t doubt that apart from the unlucky, the humans would prevail. And hey, you’d get to use your Garand for realz, yo. And grizzlies are better predators than shamblors. It’d be bad, but we’d get through, I think. Less horror confronting bears, maybe.
But natural predators of zombies like maggots? The flys won’t bother them as their flesh is poisonous. So point against them there. Attack dogs can't bite them without getting sick. Not zombified, but definitely very sick.
Zombie Putrefaction? No. The same poison in zombie flesh works against the flies and other critters that might eat a zombie works on the bacteria that would rot them out. So summer days are no problem, long term. They would slow in the extreme cold, though, having no warming metabolic processes to speak of. They got that part right.
The article assumes that the pathogen that spreads zombification from infected bites can’t REALLY be that virulent. Incorrect. It is. Careful with your ‘assumption’ because you’ll make an ‘ass’ out of ‘u’ and ‘mptions.’ Or somesuch.
Day to day wear and tear does take a toll on zombies body integrity, but they can absorb a lot of wear and tear before becoming immobilized enough to no longer be a threat. You can't walk around with an exposed femur or severed foot for long, but they can.
There are indeed a lot of zombie proof barriers in the world. Thank the good Lord. It’s one of our only hopes. Unless the menace is composed of those very capable sprinters, able to get anywhere a live person can. And maybe more places.
We do indeed have 88 firearms for every 100 people. And even a .22 works as a zombie stopper if you can shoot from a safe place. Even #8 shot from close range.
So, worth checking the post out, but not best info available.
