Default Wild Dog Packs

I'm watching "MonsterQuest" right now, and they are talking about how wild dogs (whether abandoned domestics, or fully wild) are becoming increasing dangerous in cities around the country. They have been known to attack humans, raid garbage, and kill house pets.

They are known to be feral, and carry many diseases. Most have mange. Experts say they are reverting back to their wolf-like qualities.

I love dogs, but this is insane. When two coyotes wandered around my property in broud daylight and obviously had horrible mange, I put them down so they wouldn't suffer the painful death that typically awaits mange-ridden animals. If these dogs are both mangy and feral, it seems only obvious that control shoud be taken and the animals should be shot.

In New York City, they don't allow guns or hunting, but it seems all too neccessary for pest control. I say people should be hired to handle this problem, people could get very sick or be killed if something isn't done about this.

What do you guys think?

Yeah, but nowadays there are too many laws that classify shooting animals as "animal cruelty".

Even if killing them isn't humane, more people should be hired to capture them and either impound them or domesticate them. Killing may be too harsh (despite how evil the show described them at the start of the episode, they were pretty damn cute and loveable towards the end when people captured some ) so just more efficient capturers would work I suppose.

But enough with the baited traps, grab some tranq. guns.

I'm actually for shooting them with live rounds as there are too many for one to take care of.

Heck, PETA ends up killing 97% of it's "Rescues" but they see no difference between Hunters and Jeffrey Dahmer.

Really? Do you have a source for this info, I'm not calling you out or anything, but that sounds pretty insane. 97%? Sounds more like they kill more animals than old age.

And some of the wild dogs have mauled people to death, so they can die.
