Marauding dogs

The marauding pack of dogs described in the May 31 edition of The NEWS showed up on my property on Forneau Way.

The marauding pack of dogs described in the May 31 edition of The NEWS showed up on my property on Forneau Way early in the evening of June 3.

Two off-white pit bulls and a brown cross boxer with a long tail — they where chasing deer from left to right on the lawn into the dense wooded areas, with me chasing them. I was finally able to get them going back over the rail tracks and towards the Martindale Road/Shelly farm area where they possibly are from.

One of the pit bulls was wearing a sort of dark leather harness where a line could be attached to hold him/her.

Talking with neighbours one of them told me he had seen the pack a few days earlier and called the RCMP.

It must be easy to find the dogs and identify the owner or owners and assure that they will be under lock at all times, as long as they are not found they will run around and keep killing innocent animals and might even attack people.
