Wild Dogs Attack Rottweiler in Wallace

WALLACE, ID—A dog owner in Wallace, Idaho says on Wednesday evening he came outside to find his 12-year-old Rottweiler that was chained up in the yard being attacked by what he thought was a pack of wolves.

 

His wife scared them off by shooting a gun into the hills, but not before the dog suffered a large cut to it's head. An officer with Idaho Fish and Game came out to the home to investigate the attack, but could find no evidence that it came from a wolf

 

"He found a lot of tracks in the area, they were dog tracks," said Phil Cooper, Idaho Fish and Game. "He was not able to find wolf tracks in the area."

 

Fish and Game says it's hard to tell what exactly made the attack. They say wolves are in the area, but so far this year they haven't had any problems with them wandering into residential areas. They do say if a wolf does come onto your property and is attacking your pets or livestock or if you have a wolf hunting tag you are legally allowed to shoot it.

 

The dog owner in this case says he knows that living in this area brings the risk of wildlife wandering onto his property, so now he along with other neighbors say they plan on leaving their pets indoors. Something fish and game is also recommending.

 

"Wolves are very perceptive and they can smell and hear dogs in the area, and will protect their territory," said Cooper

    WASHINGTON - Trains that carry oil and other flammable materials near communities won't have to install electronically controlled braking systems to reduce risk of derailments and explosions after the Trump administration reversed an Obama-era safety rule on Monday. In a post on its website, the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration argued that the cost of installing the new brakes outweighs the benefit.
