I'm really curious to know...

Am I the only one who ends up doing a job that your county agency couldn't/wouldn't or failed miserably at, or is it just me?

We have some excellent agencies...and well...there's one other... whistle

Working a job right now (on my own dime) that is literally a human safety issue. Vicious dogs.

Parents shouldn't have to be afraid of their kids (or themselves) being mauled-and their livestock being repeatedly killed. I guess some of those badges really do come out of crackerjack boxes. Wondering if I'm the only one who comes across issues like this?

Been there, done that! Are they feral dog's, or just running loose? Gotta be careful, somebody might claim those "Extremely valuable, highly trained" animals.

Hey BigBob, Feral dogs they do absolutely nothing about. And out here, they're generations feral, and are dangerous...they take down and kill horses-desert ferals are the toughest of the tough (and are trap shy!) Really hard to get!
This is a pack of dogs that aren't fed by the owner. They're squatters-and the neighborhood is stuck with them until the house is seized. No electricity, no running water. The dogs constantly jump fences. A lot of smaller livestock killed and one horse attacked. Tons of calls made to complain, pieces of paper left by the "agency" on the gate. Repeatedly. They state nothing can be done because they don't see the dogs off of the property-yet there is video of them driving down the street with the dogs standing IN the street. Well, guess what happened? Dogs (of course) started getting bolder, enlarging what they considered to be their own territory. Countless calls to officials by neighbors, even video of a woman jogging who was surrounded and lunged at and was bitten on the back of her leg was presented. I wish I could post that here. More useless paper slapped on the fence. After seeing that video, I offered to help. I set 2 traps legally, on her property, and well inside of her 5 foot high fence line where they jump the fence nightly to harass her livestock. 4 hours later, two of the dogs (again) jumped her fence and were trapped-the 2 of the 4 who had surrounded her, lunging at her, one of them the same dog that bit the back of her leg (and a 13 year old kid I found out this morning) Agency was upset that they had to make the effort to come out to get them! (Making friends everywhere I go!) I won't apologize for helping out a woman with 7 little kids and a hubby deployed to Afghanistan who can't walk out their own front door on a fenced property.
I always see this "agency" with cheap dog traps on the tops of their trucks, but rarely have I seen one used-save once. We found one they'd abandoned, a trapped dog had been in it for several days, and had chewed himself halfway out of it when discovered, half dead from thirst. Someone's pet, nice dog, returned to owner. I hope this is only happening here, I'd hate to think its a common problem elsewhere. I'm a long time GSD owner, and it sure is sad when dogs end up like this-there's no one to blame but irresponsible people.

The owners could show up at the shelter, plead their case, and pay a couple hundred bucks to spring each dog, but they never will. At least there they have regular food, clean water, and are split up so they won't be attacking anyone again.

"Leader" of the pack here, this dog would have torn my face off if he'd been given the chance. Same one that bit the woman and went after the kid. They're gonna be even more upset with me when they have to come back out and get the other two. Oh well...

Amazing they won't do anything when the dogs are trying to hamstring people. They were trying to take her down.

Amazing and totally unacceptable-especially when I have to go out there and do a job the taxpayers are paying for. Dogs gone, that won't be happening there again...and for the first time in about a year, I drove past and saw little kids riding their bikes and playing street hockey yesterday. Prior to that-that neighborhood was a ghost-town. The neighbors got together and surprised me with gifts of gas cards for my trouble when I came to pick up my traps. Made my day!!
