Feral Animal Companion [General] (from Champions of Ruin)
You can enslave a feral animal and adopt it as your animal companion.
Prerequisites: Animal Companion class feature, evil alignment.
Benefit: Instead of calling a normal animal companion, you can call a feral animal companion that foams at the mouth. Any creature harmed by the animal's bite attack must succeed on a DC 15 Fortitude save or contract red ache (see the Dungeon Master's Guide, page 292). The disease has no harmful effect on the feral animal. In addition, your feral animal companion gains a +2 bonus to Strength and Constitution. Attempts by others to influence your feral animal companion with Handle Animal checks take a -10 penalty.
Special: This feat does not transform a normal animal companion into a feral animal companion.
