Was headed to the west end feeding yesterday and seen a yote in the road about 200 yards up. I hit the gas and the closer I got the more of them started to show up, four all together they were leaving a dust rail with me right on their arse. They started to break into the brush when i was about 50 yards away when I noticed they were not yotes but dogs that had the same coloration and size as yotes but heavier. These dogs were wild as any yote I've ever seen. If these were coy dogs they will be the first I've ever seen.

I've seen a couple over the years, including a coal black one I watched bury a dead squirrel under my tree.

Trapped a few and shot a few more back in the early '80's around Lorena. Had one rancher/farmer in the area that ran sheep and had a pack go through his herd one night and killed something like 15-20 of his sheep. After that, they were pretty much open season.

A friend and myself ran into a pack of about 10 in a wheat field. We each dropped one while they were milling around then tried to wipe them out as the high-tailed it across the field. The one's we got were all in the 40-60 lb range.

People would come out and dump unwanted dogs and cats out there often enough that they started interbreeding with the local coyotes, to the point that I really don't believe there were any pure-breed coyotes left in that area.

Kind of sounds like a bunch of wild dogs that are running in packs. But it could be a case of some people's dog that run together during the day when their owners are at work. Domestic dogs that run in packs will kill for the fun of it. On the other hand, packs of feral dogs kill for both food and fun. If they are feral shooting them is not a problem. If they are domestic pets, use the SSS, owners will defend their dogs more than they will their spouse or kids and could cost you a lot of money in legal fees.

Any chance of them being some kind of Mexican wolf?

We have a new policy now at our ranch and the neighboring ranches as well. If you see a stray dog, it's getting a dirt nap.

About 3 weeks ago, my neighbor had a $5000 show calf killed by 4 dogs. 1 of them was his own dog that joined the pack while it was attacking. 2 were shot on site. The other 2 were shot a couple days later.

He figured since there were 4 dogs, total will be $1000 per dog in restitution. One neighbor agreed to pay for his 1 dog. The other neighbor that had the 2 other dogs told him to pound sand.

Bad deal!!

I have a couple of dogs running deer & hogs on my place. They do not have collars on but I can tell they belong to someone but not sure who. Been asking around but no one is claiming them. I don't want to break any laws but if I cannot find the owner can I shoot the dogs? If I find the owner and he doesn't keep his dogs off my property can I shoot the dogs if he has been warned? This seems to be a common problem in rural areas. I have a buddy of mine who has the same issue on his lease.

Treat them same as a wolf or coyote , put them to sleep . More than likely are wild dogs and they can be as mean as a pack of wolfs .
