Allowing dogs to run wild seems like a disaster waiting to happen.
They're pack animals and when hungry they will do what they have to to eat.
A stray dog running after a bicycle is what dogs do. It's called prey drive. Put a bunch of them together and you've got trouble.
Letting them run wild is hardly humane. These are dsomesticated dogs. They should be with human owners or humanely pts.
Sorry that I have a dsifferent view of this.
Think of it this way...our own dogs are packs, and will tend to do nawty things when left to themselves. Now think of unowned dogs that don't even have contact with humans on regular basis, or training, and they are running in packs, and don't have a fear of humans the way wild animals do, or feral cats. Recipe for disaster!

It's true that the view on euthanasia is very different here....when one has an unwanted dog or problemed dog, most ppl would opt to release them as far away as possible from home instead of euthanasia. I really don't understand how this is more humane for the dogs... Turning into a pound guarantees death....sometime not by euthanasia. So nobody do that anymore.
I'm glad that group was seeing the importance of spay/neuter.
