Feral dogs are bad bad bad. No one believes me, those dogs people drop off in the woods because they were a PITA go wild and they change!

They won’t even bark at you. They form packs. Will sneak up on you and try to get you, they stalk people!

Used to walk around with a big rock in my hand when I was a kid just for smashing those damn strays in the head. They will hurt you bad.

We have to “deal” with them once or twice year because of the cattle. Seems like they only become a problem when their are 3 or more.

In the past I’ve mentioned my encounter with a pack of dogs here on the place. Short version is that I went to see what the barking and baying was all about. I had a rifle with three rounds in it. Found where they were, in thick cover. Big dog saw me about the time I saw him, and he came at me with teeth bared. I eliminated that threat, but here came a second dog, teeth bared. When he was down, and I had one round left, here came two dogs and moving fast. I reflex shot at the bigger one, and they veered off and disappeared. After that I was shaking. A neighbor found the carcass of the 3rd dog the next day.

If they had come at me in a group, they’d have had me.

Feral packs of dogs living on their own are the most dangerous animals I have encountered in the woods. We lost 2 calves to a pack one year, that pack before we got it killed at least 10 calves and over 20 pigs from neighboring farmers combined before we got them taken care of. 3 well cared for family pet dogs were also lost to that pack. There have been others over they years but that was the worst pack numbers wise and cost to farmers that I remember.

Edit to add that this and some others were taken care of per instructions from the Sheriff and Game Warden

A LONG time ago “somebody” shot a dog that growled and showed its teeth to somebody’s little grandson on his own land at the house in the country. The owners had an idea who did it and called the sheriffs office. The sheriffs deputy showed up and explained that it is illegal to shoot another persons dog for any reason and that somebody ought to call the law and file a complaint.

Somebody thanked the deputy for his time and opened a couple of beers.

Shooting dogs makes my skin crawl and I hate, hate, hate having to do it. There is not a single time that I have done it that I can't remember perfectly and I regret what I did even though it was necessary.

Had a lease on the Brazos outside of Seymour a few years ago. One afternoon I was still hunting along the river looking for bedded down hogs when I heard lots of barking around a bend and across the river. When I got to see where all the commotion was going on it was a big pack of wild dogs. The lead dog saw me about the same time I saw them. He ran towards me a few steps then stopped to look back at his buddies. I put him down and the rest ran off. If they would have come at me as a pack I would have been screwed. I ask the landowner if he ever had any trouble with them and he said he would usually lose a calf or 2 to them yearly. It was known to all the local ranchers to shoot them on sight when seen.


That's my $.02. Here's you're change!!

This SOB and 2 of his buddies killed 2 40 lb feeder pigs on our place in October 2019. They jumped in the pen, ran them down, and began eating them. I killed his 2 buddies but never caught up with him. In the weeks proceeding our attack they pulled down 9 brangus cows on a neighbors place 2 miles east of us. I was contacted by a Texas Cattlemens Association investigator to give a statement as to what took place and provide pictures.
Enlarge the picture, and you can see the blood on his face, chest, and for legs.

It was a pack of dogs that killed my livestock. More than likely someone's dogs gone wild. A report was provided to Texas Cattlemen Association so no wrong doing on my part.

I wasn't questioning your actions. The dog just seemed really healthy and normally when I see feral dogs they're kind of scrawny. Wasn't sure if it was a local dog that was just no good and causing problems.

Many years ago when I lived in NJ. I went late season small game hunting in the North west corner of the state. Mainly dairy farms, I happened across a most gruesome seen.
I saw dog tracks on the snow ( which was about a foot and a half deep) with about 3-4 dogs who were light enough to suspend on the surface however a couple of deer that kept breaking through the crust were being chased by this pack. At the time we had very few if any coyotes so these were local pets who kept chasing and harassing these poor deer
I followed the tracks for about a mile observing clumps of fur initially then blood splatter which got more and more dense. Eventually I came across a yearling buck with chunks of his hind quarters removed and some of his entrails exposed and eaten. The dog tracks were concentrated here and then disbursed however the blood splatter from the other couple deer went beyond this point.

What a horrible way to die with these uncontrolled domesticated dogs reverting back to their predatory instincts and killing these deer in a horrible and valueless manner,

I called the local game warden but have no idea if any action was taken.

Any dog without a collar and on someone else's land is feral and should be shot on sight, IMO.

That may be true but you have to consider consequences, you tangle with the wrong dog owner and that might get you killed.

I've seen feral dogs in the SHNF, and know others who have as well. I think people come up from Houston and turn dogs loose. There's also a herd of cattle in there, I assume someone has a federal grazing lease or something though and not actual feral cattle.

I’ve read it on the THF before; shoot, shovel, and shut up.

I'll bet it's that final S in SSS that gets some in a bind.

I remember when I was a little bitty kid and dogs would show up at the house sometimes. Dad would leash them and take a walk. We'd hear the pop and he'd return with just the leash. It's been decades so I feel safe talking about it now. We never talked about it at the time. We weren't told as kids to keep it quite, I guess it was understood.

I grew up on a 160 acre farm that was close to a subdivision.

Many people in the subdivision would let their dogs run loose in the neighborhood and about once a year, we would get raided. Dead ducks and chickens all over the farm yard.

We knew quite a few people who lived there and they could not believe that their beloved fido would have anything to do with such an act. They were adamant about it.
