    Feral Dogs Kill Five People in Mexico

    A pack of feral dogs may be responsible for the deaths of as many as five people in a Mexico City park, the authorities said Wednesday. Last week, the police said dogs had killed four people, including a woman and a baby boy, whose mutilated bodies were found in the park in December. Now, prosecutors are investigating if the wounds found on a fifth person, a 15-year-old girl who died in December, are consistent with dog bites. The authorities have captured several dogs, spurring an online campaign to save them, but it is not clear if any are the culprits.

    It is something normal dogs do when roaming free in packs for extended periods. Proper animal control has a purpose.

    If you've received spam from me, my apologies. My gmail contact list was stolen and they spoof me every couple of months. Nothing I can do, but if you get spam from roger.j.carlsonATgmailDOTCOM, just put the address in your block list. I still receive email there, but I don't send from that address anymore.

    They randomly collected dozens of dogs from the area which probably contains many hundreds of dogs, including owned pets. It is normal in this area to allow your pet to roam.

    Dogs rule, cats drool.

    Unless your dog eats you.

    They're only cannibals if they eat other dogs.

    Man-eating dogs? No, they killed women too. Human-eating dogs. Humanitarian dogs.
