Packs of wild, abandoned dogs are roaming the streets of Detroit, leaving city officials overwhelmed at the prospect of handing an issue that raises both animal rights and safety concerns.

A lot of the reported "dogs" are not dogs at all - they're packs of coyotes, aka prairie wolves. They acclimate very well to human cities and towns, and have been seen throughout Detroit including downtown. We even have packs in the suburbs.

The mistake is an easy one to make as they look much like dogs, but they're more aggressive towards other animals and sometimes people. Usually run less than 30- 40 lbs.

I was going to say just this... Any bets on how many of these dogs are going to end up in a fight club?

Shame they can't send the dogs to areas where they would be adopted. :/

But the reality of the situation is more dire than an impromptu animal pool party. Local shelters say they are forced to euthanize about 70 percent of the dogs that are brought it, and their facilities are overwhelmed by the sheer amount of abandoned and stray animals.

 

I know this is harsh to say, but give nature a few months and she will weed them out. I doubt there is enough food there for them all.
