Likely attack on Jackson County dog by wolves

Post by Koa » Sat Aug 21, 2010 11:13 am

(http://www.leadertelegram.com/news/dail ... 002e0.html)
On Monday wildlife officials responded to a call of a missing dog from a private landowner in the town of Bear Bluff in Jackson County.
That's unfortunate, but I do recall some type of wolf-alert system being placed through via e-mail to subscribers? I hope that system becomes a bit more widespread as able to stop unfortunate events like these.

That's quite unfortunate to hear. I would be quite sad if my dog disappeared like that. I agree, I hope that system does hopefully get more subscribers and things, so events like this may occur less frequently.
Thanks for sharing Koa!

Well its bound to happen when nature mixes with domestic.

But you know that rarely happens up here-at least that I know of. You don't see many wolves up here. They are more up north I think...and more in the forest than in the city XD

That is very unfortunate. I fell bad for the dog's owner or owners. As alpha female has posted, I too would be sad if that was my dog. Thank you for sharing Koa

Thats quite sad to hear. Poor owners must've been awful to find out the next morning that their dog was missing.
I hope the system gets more subscribers as some people have mentioned above ^^.

Thanks for sharing this with us Koa ^^

Unfortunately, most large carnivores show volatileness and aggression towards domestic pets. And wolves are very unpredictable in the sense that it may seem like that they first engage a dog into "play" with them and then decide to attack. This is saddening, yes, but people should learn from these incidents and educate themselves about preventing wildlife attacks on domestic animals.

Very sad, poor dog
I really can't deny it, I am who I am.I'm pretty normal.I'm not that smooth type of girl. I run into things, I trip, I spill food. I say stupid things... I really don't have it all together.

Aw, I feel bad for the owners. I was so disraught when my old cat was ran over.
But just asking a question, why would he let his dog out at 2:00 AM?

Maybe the dog had to go to the bathroom? I've been woken up by our dog in the middle of the night before, because it was scratching and whining at the door wanting to go outside.
