50K Stray Dogs Roam Liberal-Apocalypse Detroit

From Bloomberg:

Abandoned Dogs Roam Detroit in Packs as Humans Dwindle

By Chris Christoff | August 21, 2013

As many as 50,000 stray dogs roam the streets and vacant homes of bankrupt Detroit, replacing residents, menacing humans who remain and overwhelming the city’s ability to find them homes or peaceful deaths.

Dens of as many as 20 canines have been found in boarded-up homes in the community of about 700,000 that once pulsed with 1.8 million people…

A city that in 1960 boasted the highest per capita income of any city in the US.

Poverty roils the Motor City and many dogs have been left to fend for themselves, abandoned by owners who are financially stressed or unaware of proper care. Strays have killed pets, bitten mail carriers and clogged the animal shelter, where more than 70 percent are euthanized…

The number of strays signals a humanitarian crisis, said Amanda Arrington of the Humane Society of the United States, based in Washington. She heads a program that donated $50,000 each to organizations in Detroit and nine other U.S cities to get pets vaccinated, fed, spayed and neutered.

Arrington said when she visited Detroit in October, “It was almost post-apocalyptic, where there are no businesses, nothing except people in houses and dogs running around.” …

The apocalypse in this case being decades of unquestioned Democrat control. In fact, Detroit is a showplace for what liberalism can do when it is given unlimited power.

“The suffering of animals goes hand in hand with the suffering of people.”

Somehow it’s easier to feel sorry for the dogs. They don’t vote. (At least not most of them.)

She said pet owners who move leave behind dogs, hoping neighbors will care for them. Those dogs take to the streets and reproduce…

In other words, they treat their dogs like they treat their children.

Most strays are pets that roam, often in packs that form around a female in heat, Ward said. Few are true feral dogs that have had no human contact…

Are we sure this is just about dogs?

Pit bulls and breeds mixed with them dominate Detroit’s stray population because of widespread dog fighting, said Ward. Males are aggressive in mating, so they proliferate, he added…

    Maybe the dogs will do a better job running the place.

    Another job for a Marine and his rifle. Looks like the Dems have turned Detriot into Fallujah. Another third world socialism success story, from riches to rags.

    Sounds like Managua Nicaragua – tons of strays roaming the streets there. : (

    Hey, at least if the food stamps run out they can always BBQ a dog. I’m sure there are a few Koreans or Chinese who know a good recipe.

    Tastes like chicken!
