Dixie I have heard about any attacks but I have seen a few dogs running loose the last few weeks. One is tan and looks like a great dane and a smaller black dogs is running around with it. They both have collars on.

tami: close to your house on the telephone poles there is a sign about the attack, we saw it yesterday. think they said this dog was a large reddish dog. guess it attacked goat (s) at the farm. poor goat. think the poster said the 29th.

was wondering about the reddish dog.....

For several years there has been a family of VERY feral dogs fitting the "reddish" description. They are brindle and almost resemble hyenas. They've killed deer at least twice in the area of the pony club, and I've seen them as far east as Sierra Verde road. This is the second generation of these dogs that I know of...I disturbed a momma with several pups about 3 years ago and she relocated her family up to the ridge below the house on the hilltop.

The dog I know of has been seen by the lady who runs the EEPC taking down a deer in the pasture while she was giving lessons.

I saw a dog pack (@8-10) over near Cramer a few days ago, they were very aggressive. There were some redish ones

for a dog to do that (take down a deer) could be very hungry. hopefully she reported this to animal welfare. they can set traps for an aggressive dog.

A dog that bites needs a serious correction. A dog that kills needs to be put down. Back home, there'd be no need to call animal welfare.

thats so sad mark. hopefully this spayed and neuter program will help. do they spay strays and then release them or try to find homes? i know with cats there is that spay and release program. wasnt sure about dogs.

mark let me as your opinion on this.....we found a stray with a chain attached and a really tight dog collar. dog was skiddish. think no good would have come to this poor dog? we have her now and she is great (have to get through the chewing puppy stage)

I think and always will say that when you save a dog or a person, anything...You have a friend for life. Let him chew and have fun for what you said you did something that MOST people would not do...They want to help just don't understand a animal or a baby take time to grow... Love him and he will do the same back. If you want to see the real deal come to the shelter, we try so hard but it's so hard when others don't care and we are the bad guys...........Thumbs up to you and your new best friend.....
