    Not to be morbid but the article did not confirm that the dogs caused the boys death...only that their dna was present.

    My thoughts also . The dogs DNA could be from them eating on the child.
    It was bad no matter how the child died.

    Does wild dogs mean just that, or does wild dogs mean owner wouldnt claim them because of the circumstances?

    Bingo. I’m sure someone owned all of them.

    Could be one, the other, or both. Growing up, we had a lot of dogs dumped out where I live. Some went feral and banded together in packs. Made life hard for a couple cattle farmers in the area.

    I was ran up a barn when I was child by a couple black labs. They ran me in a log pen barn And climbed the logs and I helped our collie up also. Finally my dad came looking on his tractor and he had to beat them back with a tobacco stick they almost ate him up. Then later that week I was in our outhouse and they started digging under door to get at me. They didn’t live through that ordeal dad killed them. I was attacked by two pit bulls once also but I had a marlin model 60 .22. Dumped the whole tube into them almost before I hit them. Scared me pretty bad. One ran into an old house and I had one bullet left before I finished it off. I tell ya when you become the prey it’s a diff feeling. I have been shot at before and wasn’t as scared as them three times.

    Won’t repeat the story as I told on here a couple of times. Had a pack come up on me while I was hunting once. Needless to say there were fewer of them when they left.

    This is why I never go in the woods without a sidearm. I have been accosted by large dogs a couple times and only escaped by wading in water once and standing my ground once. I felt really lucky to escape both times. There was a lady torn up pretty bad in our county one year, and I knew the dogs that did it, and it surprised me. They had formed a pack and followed the leader. After that I always carry in woods.

    This is terrible. Feral dogs are dangerous and I've had several encounters with them in East KY. SSS is the only way to go

    The state needs to encourage culling of feral dogs. coyotes too.
