Are Wild Dogs Roaming St. Louis?

Are Wild Dogs Roaming St. Louis?Are Wild Dogs Roaming St. Louis?, Ten years after a fourth grader was attacked and nearly eaten by wild dogs in northern St. Louis, city leaders are struggling to make sure it never happens again.

Alderman President Lewis Reed is the alarm. “I have seen packs of dogs, 10 and 15 dogs running together, and I saw all these dogs I’m talking about have no neck, with no labels, it is truly feral dogs,” he said.

Reed said that stray dogs are terrorizing the north. “It is obscene that parents have to walk their children to school in some parts of the city, with a golf club to fend off wild dogs.”

Reed is not only an alarm. 21st Ward, Councilman Antonio French posted a video on his YouTube channel that shows a dog threatening local residents.

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

“Cases of dog bites are proprietary. Still talking about this like packs of wild dogs running through the city, we do not,” she says.

Alderman President Reed is in total disagreement, told KMOX News “we have a wild explosion of stray dogs in St. Louis and a large number of them are born out of captivity.”

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