Dogs that are Truly Cared For are Less Likely to Become Wolf's Prey

Letters / Anchorage Daily News / December 21, 2007

In response to your articles about wolves in rural Alaska eating people's pets, one being "Another dog falls victim to wolf pack" (Dec. 7), isn't there something really obvious going on here? If people really cared about their dogs, wouldn't they go out with them, or at least have a fenced area where they would be safe?

Moose kill chained dogs also. Two of the dogs killed were old Labradors. What kind of a life is it for any dog on the end of a chain, or put out to fend for itself, particularly in its old age, in an area where predators are known to be around? Far too many dogs are victims before the predators get them.
