The Yahoo article goes into juicier details like mutilated breasts, conspiracy theories with people suggesting a serial killer dumped the bodies there because there was no blood, and a girl calling her sister saying she was being attacked by wild dogs and her sister hanging up on her thinking she was joking.

That's the difference between cats and dogs.  Left in the wild, cats will fight among each other for territory.  Dogs will band together and kill you.

FTA: "The authorities trapped beagles, Maltese, poodles; can you imagine how long it would take for them to kill a person?" he asked.

Not as long as this guy apparently thinks. Especially if they hit an artery. They're small and cute, but they're still predators at their core, and if they get hungry enough (or are rabid, although I don't think they'd work in packs in that case) they can still do some damage. And they'd probably have the element of surprise, since you wouldn't expect to be eaten by a beagle.

Luckily, here in America, it's only packs of Coyotes that are attacking people. Those poor wild animals! Forced to move into century old neighborhoods to hunt for lap dogs and toddlers. Won't someone think of the poor, overpopulated, overfed Coyote!

On the outskirts of the PHX Metro area, more specifically the Gila Indian Reservation there are multitude of wild dogs packs. Just recently going to work a lady was trapped in her car as around 7-8 dogs surrounded and attempted to attack the car. We drove up next to her as she was stopped not doing anything for some odd reason, we honked our horn, revved the engine and move our car at the dogs (not hitting though) and in about 10 seconds the dogs were gone. This lady was stopped in the road for at least 30 seconds as we saw her in the distance upon approaching her. I don't know why she didn't just do the same thing.

But yeah there is a problem of wild dogs not just on the reservation either, I wouldn't walk some places at night in my suburban neighborhood in the Phoenix area. Now it must be a cultural thing because there are the Indian reservations and the Mexicans who just don't care for dogs, forced to live outside in the heat during the summer too. It is disgusting as I am loving dog owner of five wonderful companions.

This is a problem in Detroit too, particularly the more post-apocalyptic areas. I never go urban exploring without a pistol for exactly this reason.

Dogs are just retarded wolfs after all, so of course they go back to their instinct.

I just shot them. Seriously. Growing up we had packs of wild strays that roamed in pretty large packs and went after horses and stuff. So, we would hunt them down. Good times, good times.

Ensenada didn't seem to have this problem...but those tacos from the taco stands on the street corners were pretty damn tasty.

I stayed in a tiny little town called Tlachichuaca a few years ago (2 hour bus ride east-ish of Puebla).

Walking outside of town at night actually made me pretty nervous because we were surrounding by packs of wild dogs out in the fields. There were easily more dogs out there than there were people in the town.

It was a Hitchcock movie waiting to happen.

I like to think of dogs as angels in disguise, testing us, and when you get to heaven, St. Peter will either be all like "Hey, why were you always whipping that dog like a dog?" Or if you're a good person and are nice to dogs, St. Peter will be all like "A-ight, your cool, get on in there and save a beer for me. Cause here's something most people don't know: Angels like to party. Lucifer? He got cast down because of too many party fouls."

Years ago I was crossing the Navajo Nation and stopped in Kayenta, near Monument Valley. There was a large dead dog, Rott-mix, laying in the parking lot. Stiff, legs in the air, stinky. Tons of locals completely ignoring it, kids running around, etc. Fairly shocking to someone who's never experienced the cultural indifference to animals that many Native American's share. Enlightening place, the Navajo Nation.

I grew up in a neighborhood where aggressive dogs were left to roam free. I was given this exact advice. All it did was encourage the dogs. Don't expect this approach to work.

Doing nothing is better than running. Although the dog may still want to fight, prey runs. Many dogs that wouldn't otherwise pursue will if something runs from them, just because it triggers an instinct reaction.

Packs of dogs can be very, very dangerous. Remember, we bred them from wolves... pretty much the top land predator after us. A single dog or a single wolf isn't the next most dangerous thing out there - but a pack sure as hell is. It's the teamwork that makes them - and us - so dangerous.

And I'm not really sure what you should do besides be armed, or make sure to be in a car or building. If they want to eat you, and you don't have weaponry of some kind, I think you're pretty much farked. I doubt posturing, or bluffing of some kind is going to have the same effect on a pack of dogs as it will a bear.
