Wow. YouTube sure has the greatest hits channel up there.
This sad story from Georgia concerns an elderly couple who were attacked by a wild dog pack in rural Georgia. Of note is that it's exceedingly rare to be attacked by dogs and be killed in the US. It's somewhat more likely in other countries, but you're more likely to be killed by lightning than to be mauled, even in rural areas.
But nature is not be trifled with. The uptick in cities dealing with mountain lion, cougar, and bear attacks in suburban areas coincides with the failure to control wild animal populations. When you inject a large number of animals into an ecosystem, there will be problems that were not foreseen in feel good legislation called Puppy Mill Cruelty Prevention.
It's not likely that the boothells of Southern Missouri will turn into a Cujo killing ground, but you will see depredations and pack behavior if you don't prepare for an influx of animals. Prop B does not do that, which will mean either the death or the wilding of at a minimum, tens of thousands of dogs.
HSUS responded to a previous post stating there was a fund put in place to help with this. I have requested documentation of that fund, as it is wildly out of place with what HSUS typically does, which is nothing. They are a special interest, providing just a tiny portion of their financial holdings to helping dogs. We'll see what they claim, if they claim anything.
In upcoming posts, we're going to discuss our role in protecting and raising animals, versus that of the government, and we're also going to research what HSUS is doing in other states. Surely if Prop B is all it is claimed, and only what is claimed, we will see similar legislation across the country, and nothing further.
