Anyone seen that story on Fatal Attractions?

Postby Laughing Hyena » Sat Dec 15, 2012 3:13 am

About this girl who lived in Florida who owned a pack of Wolf Hybrids that killed her? Now incidents like this make me consider not wanting to get a Wolf Hybrid anymore kind of scary. They just found her body lying in the cage with the Wolf Hybrids and the coroner said she had definately been mauled sneaky kills those Wolf Hybrids can make. :monkshock:

If you watched the video then you would of been able to tell those animals were dogs, if there was any wolf in them at all it was barely any. There was only one who had any considerable amount of wolf blood in it.

Protip: don't believe ANYTHING that Animal Planet airs about stuff like that. It's complete bull. They're anti-exotic and are in the pocket of the HSUS. They're trying to make exotic pets and their owners look bad. Dogs injure and kill more people in the USA every year than any other animal, and no one reconsiders owning a dog because of those stats. Don't be fooled.

What the others said. Animal Planet has been bought out by Animal Rights people in recent years and sadly has turned from good quality wildlife documentary programming to AR crap and propaganda shows like Fatal Attractions, Whale Wars,etc. As for the wolfdog episode, those animals had a lot more dog in them than wolf. It is kind of scary that she was supposeldy killed by the pack of dogs though. I can't seem to find any info on why they killed her though or if they even killed her or if she died some other way but they just chew on her after or something.

I like that show, but I am not one to blindly believe what they say.

BUT, owning a pack of Wolfdogs wouldn't be the greatest idea you could think of if you didn't know what you were getting into, and most of the people on those shows made some pretty bad choices.

Dogs that run in a pack sometimes get a little stirred up. The pack mentality turns into mob mentality with the push of a button. Play can turn into deadly force. Especially if its just one human against a pack of dogs. Detroit has a couple feral dog packs that have killed people just walking down the street, AKA entering the packs territory. Just because its a dog doesn't mean its harmless. Just because its a wolf doesn't mean its deadly.

Its not smart to own any animal you are unfamiliar with. And it is down right idiotic to own a "pack" (3+ animals of any species, you could put flock, herd, or even gaggle there) of animals you are unfamiliar with. It is also important to recognize that most people who own exotics know what they are getting into. Those people live quietly with their animals and try not to draw attention as most attention would be negative. Its the people who get into trouble with exotics that get on shows. That happens way less than you would think. I have watched the show rarely and from what I saw, the people on there need psychological help. They weren't normal people owning exotics. And it certainly should define the rest of the exotic community.

Think about it. How often to do you read/see a show about the person who owns 2 tigers on her private property? The tigers have a huge enclosure, are well fed, and have lots of toys. Never. Only the crazies get on TV.
