Dogs - 2 Everyone Else - 0
Since late March, a pack of dogs has been roaming the countryside of Washington state, killing farm animals and leaving residents terrified - Awesome
The pack has killed at least 100 animals over the last few months, including $3,500 worth of sheep, goats and chickens. They even took down a 350-pound llama, suggesting that they could easily take down a human. - No shit they could take down a human there is 5 crazy ass dogs
Authorities speculate the pack is made up of four or five large canines of various breeds. - If dogs can see past color why cant we?
The dogs could be wild or feral, but they could also be going home to owners during the day and returning to the pack at night. - Sweet mother of god they are just bad ass house dogs who are cuddling by day and fucking up llama's by night? "Not my dog" say the parents with the blinders on.
It actually looks like they're "killing for kicks," rather than for food, says Larry McShane at the New York Daily News.- Rumor has it Brett Ratner has already bought the movie rights.
In other dog news
PALATKA, Fla. — Authorities say two dogs attacked an elderly north Florida man, tearing off his right arm and seriously wounding his left. - That story is just kind of depressing.
Now time to cheer everyone up. Im telling you read the the rest of this
Stray Dogs Master Complex Moscow Subway System
Every so often, if you ride Moscow's crowded subways, you notice that the commuters around you include a dog - a stray dog, on its own, just using the handy underground Metro to beat the traffic and get from A to B.
Yes, some of Moscow's stray dogs have figured out how to use the city's immense and complex subway system, getting on and off at their regular stops. The human commuters around them are so accustomed to it that they rarely seem to notice.
ABC News found a female stray in the Kievskaya station, and barely managed to follow her as she zipped between the legs of the bustling travelers around her to catch a ride on the Koltsevaya Line.
Once on board, she settled down on the floor among the feet and legs, even dozed a bit, and occasionally got up for a brief conversation with a friendly human
Moscow's strays have also been observed obeying traffic lights, says Vereshchagin. He and Poyarkov report the strays have developed a variety of techniques for hunting food in the wild metropolis.
Sometimes a pack will send out a smaller, cuter member apparently realizing it will be more successful at begging than its bigger, less attractive counterparts.
I need more Russian dog friends. They sound awesome and not as needy as all the American dogs I'm friends with now.
