Stray dog packs

Once dogs start running loose, they will tend to start running with other strays and forming packs. With time the pack will get larger and each individual dog will stay away from it's home longer and longer. Once they get the taste of calves or chickens or other domestic animals they rarely will leave the pack to go back home. They will go wild and become very vicious with time.

When I was a kid we had a pack get started in our country. These mostly were strays dropped in the country by 'city folks'. After about a year the pack had 20-24 dogs and was pulling down quite a few calves. The sherrif wouldn't do anything so the neighbors put a $50 bounty on them. Two coyote hunters in the local town came out with their custom rifles and in less than a month the pack was eliminated. The two guys only took $100 each for expenses and wouldn't take any more. They kinda became celebrities in our country and were welcome to coyote hunt anywhere they wanted to.

When I was a kid, an old man in the area had a pack of dogs that ran wild. When they came up our way bothering the cattle we shot all we could. I remember the time when the mail man said the guy hadn't picked up his mail for several days and called the law to look into it. Law found some bones of the old man, but the dogs had eaten most of him. The law shot all the dogs they could find and we had no more trouble with dogs bothering the cattle. The mail man said that the old man had told him never to get out of his truck or the dog might go after him. The crazy old fool should have took his own advice. Wonder if the dogs thought he tasted like beef?
