I save mine and put it over the food for my outside kitties, especially in the wintertime to give them calories and fat for warmth.

I always have a container of bacon grease in the freezer because I have to have it for my cornbread.

The wild birds need that fat to keep warm in cold weather.

Yeah, that's what I was going to suggest. That's basically what those "suet" balls are that you can get at garden/nature stores. Birds love and need that fat/protein mix.

I used to make little bird feeders by collecting some giant pinecones (you know the big ones that are like the size of a fist) and covering it with a thick layer of bacon grease (or all natural, no additive) peanut butter and then rolling it in bird seed. You then hang a strong string from the top and hang from branches for the birds.
