KILLER DOG PACKS IN EASTERN WASHINTON
Couple Terrified To Leave Their Daughter Outside
October 12, 2009
(BRIDGEPORT BAR, WA) -- They are not wild animals but they hunt, corner and kill sometimes as quickly and efficiently as a pack of wild wolves.
Repeated attacks from packs of dogs to Kyle Wilfong’s purebred Suffolk sheep prompted the Bridgeport Bar resident to ask Douglas County commissioners for help, according to a recent story in the Wenatchee World newspaper.
Wilfong said the loose, stray and wild packs of dogs killed four of his sheep last October, and this March dogs climbed a nearly 5-foot-tall pen and killed four lambs and mauled three others.
More than 10 dogs have been shot during the various attacks.
“We have a 3-year-old daughter and we’re terrified to have her outside. I’ve had nightmares about it,” Wilfong said last week.
