Wild Pets

Originally ran here as:
"Wild Pets"
February 20, 2002

WEBBERVILLE, TEXAS -- There's a growing public safety problem in Central Texas. It's happening near Webberville along the Travis/Bastrop county line.

Packs of dogs --- pets running loose -- attacking and killing livestock. Residents say the dogs band together and a pack mentality wipes out any puppy love.

Two months ago Donna Moreno was surrounded by ten to fifteen dogs. She emptied her gun trying protect her goat herd, never thinking she'd have to protect herself.

She got on the phone and told the operator she was about to die because she was being attacked by wild dogs.

A neighbor with ammunition scared the pack off.

Several months ago, a pack of dogs killed a two thousand dollar llama, and now they're attacking registered angus baby calves -- the livelihood of several farmers here.

Then, just three days ago -- a pack attacked again -- three goats dead, others mutilated.

Now the concern has spread to the neighborhood children who play here.

Bastrop County Animal Control tries to keep up with the number of loose animals.

Eleven dogs were trapped this week alone after a calf was killed, but animal control authorities stress these are not wild dogs, they're someone's pets.

Pets that Bastrop county animal control hopes people will keep safe at home. Far from livestock and gunfire.

Neighbors admit they don't feel comfortable shooting the dogs because they know they're someone's pets.

They say it's like committing murder.

If the pack dogs are trapped, and their owners can't be found, most are not fit for adoption, and eighty to ninety percent of them are put to sleep.

To have no proud monarch driving over me with his gilt coaches; nor his host of excise-men and tax-gatherers insulting and robbing me; but to be my own master, my own prince and sovereign, gloriously preserving my national dignity, and pursuing my true happiness; planting my vineyards, and eating their luscious fruits; and sowing my fields, and reaping the golden grain: and seeing millions of brothers all around me, equally free and happy as myself. This, sir, is what I long for. -- General Francis Marion, American War of Independence, Georgetown, SC [Source: 'Marion, The Life of Gen. Francis Marion' by M. L. Weems, Ch.18]
