Detroit goes to the dogs
Daily Caller ^ | Aug 21, 2013 | Brendan Bordelon

As the human exodus from bankrupt Detroit picks up speed, packs of feral dogs are overrunning the city’s streets and abandoned buildings.

Bloomberg reports that as many as 50,000 canines prowl through the Motor City’s darkened roads and condemned houses, causing serious problems for the few people that remain.

“It was almost post-apocalyptic,” said Amanda Arrington of the Humane Society, who visited the city last October. “There are no businesses, nothing except people in houses and dogs running around.”

The threat of dog attacks have forced the Postal Service to temporarily halt delivery in certain neighborhoods. One mail carrier recalled using clouds of pepper spray to disperse swarms of small but savage hounds.

“It’s like Chihuahuaville,” she said.

One woman was attacked four months ago by two strays while sitting on her porch. The animals tore off the woman’s scalp during the assault.

I so need to move to Detroit. It'd be like living in the outback, with Hiroshima-like devastation about.

Dogs running in packs are dangerous, but I would still be more afraid of the residents left in Detroit than the dogs.

Dogs are not taking out 5 0r 6 citizens with gunfire every weekend.

At least the feral cat problem is at a low.

"The animals often form packs around a female in heat, and then go looking for trouble."

Ummm....should I make a comparison? Nah....I think most can figure it out.

Well at least the Wild Dogs shows they can run Detroit better than a bunch of liberals who behave like wild dogs. These dogs are behaving out of survival, but how can one explain the liberals that ran this city into the sewer.

Yes, but the Third World does not have good beer and dancing women just across a bridge.

This is what happens when civilization falls. Dogs return to the wild, and they are definitely dangerous, even though still so adorable.

I’d bet there’s a serious shortage of squirrels, rabbits and other four-legged small animals, too.

It'd be perfect, and the end would be fitting. I have little family, and no wife or kids.

It would be heaven on Earth, and when my time comes, it would be in a (legal) blaze of gunfire.

Indeed.

I saw this promotional video (I think posted on FR too) on YouTube about this startup company that proposed turning all of Detroit (the abandoned sections, which is pretty much all of it) into a giant theme park who’s theme would be : Night of the Zombie.

They proposed housing park guests in the abandoned homes and the park would hire people to play Zombies that would then “attack” the park guests. The object would be to survive in a post apocalyptic zombie world. If you got caught by a zombie you would be considered transformed and then be expected to chase your friends with the zombies.

It sounded like a good idea, I thought; I couldn’t tell if they were serious in their proposal or it was just an elaborate hoax video. They seemed serious and it looked like a lot of fun! I certainly would like to give it a shot.

Buy a house for next to nothing, fortify it and then spend the rest of your money on guns, ammo and food.

Mice, rats, and other rodents, marsupials etc are all fair game for hungry, feral dogs. That’s a sad situation...

All kidding aside, we already have these packs of dogs running in Memphis. The industrial areas at night are particularly dangerous. Individually they are ok but when they run in a pack, watch out.
