Dogs Gone Wild In St. Louis

Officials in St. Louis are concerned about a growing number of wild dogs that are roaming the municipality.

Aldermanic President Lewis Reed is sounding the alarm. “I’ve witnessed packs of dogs, 10 and 15 dogs running together, and I’ve seen all these dogs I’m talking about they don’t have collars, they don’t have tags, these are truly wild dogs,” he said.

Others are concerned, too.

Reed isn’t only one sounding the alarm. 21st Ward Alderman Antonio French posted a video on his YouTube channel showing a dog menacing some local residents.

Health Director Pam Walker says for the year the city has reported 360 dog bites, many of them serious enough for the dog to be euthanized.

The cities answer is more dog catchers.  But, that move will prove costly to the budget.

Walker will unveil a plan this week to put more dog catchers on the street, but she says she’ll need Reed’s help to find the half million it will cost to fund.
