I am a person that has fought cruelty to animals all my life. I can understand that these pack dogs might pose a threat but there has to be a better solution than shooting them. Even though they are packs, alot of them can be rehabilitated.
Since moving to Tx. I am appalled by the cruelty to animals and the lax way people are punished that bring harm to them. Texans like to boast their state is bigger and better than any other but this is something I wouldn't be proud of.

If you are that concerned, then YOU collect them and get them out of Ferris. Until then, YES, Texas will be proud of doing whatever it takes to keep its citizens safe. I fully support the right of the city to take action like this when other methods have failed.

Yet we as Texas seem to turn a "blind-eye" when we see people dumping their unwanted pets. Dogs
are pack animals, that's how they survive.
So let's also try to put a stop to people dumping their unwanted pets out in the country.

With our lax laws now,, make sure your cell phone can take pix of license plates and the heartless act, then report it... your sheriff's number is

Ferris follows there own laws and does what they want. They hang out more than anything.
