Detroit rapper takes a bite out of the city’s stray dog problem
The population of the Motor City has plummeted since the recession began, but its stray dog population has skyrocketed. Estimates vary, but groups say the number of strays on the streets is somewhere between 20,000 and 50,000.
People have been abandoning Detroit in search of jobs, and they often leave their pets behind. By abandoning them, some dog owners may think they’re giving their pets a fighting chance in a city whose animal shelters have a euthanization rate of more than 70 percent.
Today, dogs have taken over many of Detroit’s abandoned buildings, and packs of them roam the streets, prompting some residents to arm themselves with pepper spray.
SEVEN dogs are believed to have eaten their owner after he left them starving without food for two weeks, The Jakarta Post said today.
