Wild dog issue

Talked to my brother last night on the phone, he is at camp. He said that two wild looking dogs were seen on our trail camera on several different days and these same dogs were at the bottom of our front porch stairs yesterday morning. He said they ran away when he yelled. How would you handle this issue?

Re: Wild dog issue

Best way is to call animal control. If no collars they should pick them up. It is unlawful to just shoot dogs unless they are attacking to the best of my knowledge.

Camp is in Forest County, not even sure they have an animal control officer.

Re: Wild dog issue

When I first got my place there was a pack of at least 6 dogs running around chashing deer. Also one or two times they chased my buddy up his tree stand when he wanted to get down.

Also one time while I was surveying my swamp two pit bull looking dogs charged me. likely I had an axe & they ran off.

Another time I recall, I just got into my truck when my buddy was walking to the truck when this pack of dogs came out of no where and charged him. Thank god for GLOCK.

Re: Wild dog issue

Call the local dog warden, Every County has one. If they are running deer call the WCO also.

Too often we enjoy the comfort of opinion, without the discomfort of thought.

Re: Wild dog issue

Probably some rednecks' dogs. Doesn't change what you should do.
I have been in parts of this country where it is normal for people to let their dogs run like this.

With some of these responses, you guys gotta be kidding me. Saw dogs on a trail camera and they ran away when they saw your brother. Ran away so clearly they are not agressive. Nothing mentioned by the OP about chasing game and some of you are talking about shooting them??? My gosh am I glad some of you don't live around me. Talk about getting carried away and making a mountain out of a molehill.

Re: Wild dog issue

When I kennel my shepard/hound mix when I'm on vacation the kennel owner takes the collar off it and puts a slip leash on him. If he were to get a way just how many days would it take for him to be "wild looking". I'm all for a hardline policy on topics and posters who suggest or encourage illegal acts- like one and done. HPA would be a better place without them. Keystonepaul

Re: Wild dog issue

I will second what you say, but also give my thoughts. In today's world, dogs should not be allowed to free range. If an owner cares about his mutts he keeps them under his control at all times. I do get tired of seeing people who post here giving advice to do something illegal. This is a public message board, and you are not as anonymous as you think you might be.
