UPDATE: 3 Members Of Dog Pack Killed

PRESS RELEASE FROM STEVENS COUNTY:  Stevens County Sheriff's Office has investigated numerous reports since the latter part of March, 2011 involving the killing and injuring of domestic animals by a pack of dogs in Southern Stevens County.    

As of June 12th, 2011 three of the dogs that were identified in the original photographs at one of the incidents have been killed. One of the dogs was killed by a hunter on 05-28-11 as he was charged by a pack of dogs while turkey hunting and the white and black dogs were subsequently killed on 06-11 & 6-12-11 by a landowner whose animals had been previously attacked and killed.

At this time based upon the latest information the Sheriff's Office has received it appears the main pack has been eliminated. We have received conflicting information as to the number of animals that may have been running in the pack, however these three are consistent with the photographs obtained.

We thank all of the volunteers and the public for their assistance in this matter.

DEER PARK, Wash. (AP) - A pack of dogs blamed for killing about 100 pets and farm animals in northeastern Washington state has been eliminated.

The Stevens County Sheriff's Office said three of the dogs in the pack have been killed. A turkey hunter has reported killing one dog on May 28 when he was charged by the pack. Two other dogs were killed by a land owner over the weekend. The land owner had lost domestic animals in the dog attacks.

Undersheriff Lavonne Webb said the dogs killed by the hunter and landowner match pictures of the pack dogs that were taken at one of the incidents. The killings started in late March and have occurred in a wide area of mountains and valleys west of Deer Park, a small town about 40 miles north of Spokane.
