Savannah Police say a pack of feral dogs, with human accomplices, has kept them busy for more than six months.
Now they are expanding their efforts to track down the animals. Six of the dogs, who’ve disrupted daily routines by rifling through trash cans and sunning in yards, have been found but the numbers continue to grow. Police say many of the canine nuisances are pregnant which adds to the problem.
“The biggest problem is that the dogs are getting support from people. We have indications that some of our traps have worked, but the dogs have been released before we can get there,” says Captain Charles Hall, commander of Special Operations.
The canines often roam from Twickenham neighborhood through Gordonston but they’ve been spotted as far as the Truman Parkway.
Anyone who sees the dogs is asked to call Metro Animal Control at 912-525-2408 or the Metro non-emergency number at 912-652-6500.
