1 Wolf killing dog breeds A Kangal dog walks with a heard of sheep at the Hutterite Rockport Colony near Pendroy, Mont. Dodgers hit three homers to beat Braves 6-0 in NLDS opener. Lisa Kimsey was among the ranchers who lost dogs. When a pack of wolves rolled through the Bighorns a few years back, one of the Kimseys' guard dogs vanished, leaving nary a hair behind. Kimsey believes that the dog fell victim to larger canids. The department looked to areas where dog breeds developed to guard sheep against wolves and brown bears. Then scientists supplied Cao de Gado Transmontanos, a large though lean and agile dog developed in a mountainous region of Portugal; Karakachans, developed by nomadic sheepherders in a mountainous area of Bulgaria; and Kangals, another powerful breed with an instinct for guarding, this one originating in Turkey. First, though, he has to attach the collar. Kinka, Tepeli and a wizened Peruvian shepherd named Geronimo chase Sonny around the pasture like bats after a moth; the dog dodges and weaves, ducking through the legs of his pursuers, growling irritable. High School football notebook: These Rangers are few, proud and successful. Democrats say FBI probe of Kavanaugh was a whitewash. Ideally, dog and sheep form the active elements in a sort of animal alchemy. As John Shivik puts it in his book The Predator Paradox: "[S]heep see the dog as a herd member, while the dog sees sheep as pack members.". The imported guard dogs cost about $500 apiece, including transportation to the U.S., Young said, and nearly all were just a few months old when they arrived. killed 4,400 head of cattle nationwide; by 2010, that number had nearly doubled to 8,100. What's more, the mere threat of predation can prevent domestic animals from grazing comfortably, diminishing their body weight and market value. She also said the dogs were only about 70 or 80 pounds. One went to a young family with sheep near their house, and now that dog plays with the TEENren and has successfully guarded those sheep against coyotes. She said the Karakachans tended to be more vigilant, the Kangals inclined to investigate, and the Cao de Gado Transmontanos better at assessing threats. Ultimately, she said, sheep producers might benefit from a mix of

2 dogs that includes some that stick near the sheep and others that patrol the perimeter. Not all dogs in the study succeeded. Jill Swannack, president of the Washington State Sheep Producers, is a veterinarian who also has a ranch with about 800 sheep on private land in eastern Washington state. She received three Karakachans. Big dogs from ancient wolf-fighting breeds get tested by U.S. sheep farmers. Maine Voices: FDA, new study address dangers of youth vaping. This iframe contains the logic required to handle Ajax powered Gravity Forms. One dog died during the study. It was hit by a vehicle as sheep crossed a road. "When we came home, they preferred to be home with us," she said. "They really didn't bond to the sheep.". As word spread, a menagerie of breeds caught on or were revived in other countries. Today, there are maremmas warding off dingoes in Australia, Anatolian shepherd dogs chasing away cheetahs in Namibia and Spanish mastiffs battling brown bears in Spain's Cantabrian Mountains. Among the many dog devotees is Lisa Kimsey, a third-generation rancher who grazes sheep with her husband, Mike, in Wyoming's Bighorn Basin. Kimsey's family has used Great Pyrenees and akbash dogs for 20 years, and though the animals haven't thwarted coyotes, cougars and black bears altogether, they've reduced the losses. The dogs even chase off ravens that peck at lambs' eyes. Onerous standard rent deals in Buenos Aires force many into informal settlements. 'Jersey Shore' star 'The Situation' hopes to get off with probation. Even if Wildlife Services can identify a better guard dog, however, the agency faces another challenge: converting science into on-the-ground policy. Though Wildlife Services promotes nonlethal management techniques like guard dogs, electric fencing and fladry, it still racks up eye-catching body counts. In 2013, in addition to the aforementioned tens of thousands of coyotes, the agency also terminated 320 gray wolves, 345 cougars and 419 black bears. - A drive to roam. Hard-wired to guard their turf against other packs as well as intruders of other species, they're also wideranging creatures, and in the wild have been known to cover up to 30 miles a day. A wolf's genes tell her to hit the road (and get out of any enclosure she's been put into) and defend her territory. Wolves also mark their territory with urine more frequently and copiously than dogs do. Doberman Pinscher Known for their alertness, intelligence and loyalty, the Doberman is one of the best guard dogs. They can weigh as much as 90 pounds. The earliest covered the years and was conducted at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School. It identified 74 fatalities, but no pit bull attacks. Later studies named pit bills as the number one dog found to fatally wound victims. View the study. Article

Chart depicts the top 7 killing dog breeds, inflicting 13 deaths during the period. Also in this report, 6 dog breeds contributed from 9 to 4 deaths, 7 breeds contributed from 3 to 2 deaths, and 20 breeds contributed to 1 death. Husky These dogs can reach about 65 pounds and are energetic and intelligent. In an 18-year CDC study, they were found responsible for 15 human fatalities, but overall the breed is known for its kind temperament. The 13-year data set shows the combination of pit bulls, rottweilers and "baiting" bull breeds, fighting and guardian breeds -- American bulldogs, mastiffs, bullmastiffs, presa canarios, and cane corsos -- contributed to over 80% of all dog bite fatalities. The CDC released a one-year study of dog bite fatalities in 1977 and performed a more extensive study which covered The latter was released in It found 327 people killed by dogs in the 19-year period with 67% of the deaths caused by Pit Bulls and Rottweilers. From 1979 to 2005, a study was done by Wilderness & Environmental Medicine, an international journal. It found 504 deaths over 26 years with 55% of the victims less than 18 years old. The study did not identify the breeds of the dogs responsible for the deaths. The American Veterinary Medical Association performed a study from that was published in They found 66 fatalities over the nine-year period and listed the culpable canines. View the study. Chart depicts dog breeds that killed 13 people during the 13-year period. 33 dog breeds contributed to 9 deaths and are excluded from this chart. 9.5% of all fatal attacks involved multiple breeds, thus the total number of deaths attributed to each breed will always exceed the actual number of deaths. - High-level curiosity. Wolves are constantly exploring their environment, says Frank Wendland, executive director of the WOLF Sanctuary (wolfsanctuary.net) in La Porte, Colo. In the wild, that means knowing every inch of a territory that can comprise from 50 to 1,000 square miles. In your house, that means knowing what's inside everything, including the cabinets, appliances and furniture. "Wolfdogs have to investigate," he says. "We have a TV on the wall of our office, and I've seen them go into the adjoining room to see where the image is coming from." Quite often, this exploration is done with teeth and claws. "I've seen them shred barbecues, walls, sofas," he says. As with many things, reality is not so simple. Wolfdogs are perhaps the most misunderstood and, many would argue, mismanaged animals in America. Advocates say they can be wonderful pets, while opponents argue that they're unpredictable, untrainable and inherently dangerous.

4 They're permitted in some places, forbidden in others and are showing up on breedban lists, along with Pits and other so-called "dangerous breeds.". chased or approached a person in either a menacing fashion or an apparent attitude of attack has attempted to bite or otherwise endanger any person." (ORC (A)(3)(a). There is a saying about there being no bad dogs only bad owners. Pit bull Weighing up to 65 pounds, Pit Bulls are typically stocky and muscular dogs and are known for taking on any opponent. They will lock their jaws on their victim and fight until death. German Shepherd Often used as a police dog, this breed is confident and fearless and weighs up to 100 pounds. The Shepherd is also known for its intelligence and vigilance. A one-year study of dog bite fatalities in An extensive study from 1979 to 1998 which was released in What are Contingency Fees and How do they Work. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that 4.6 million Americans are bitten by dogs each year. About 885,000 of these victims seek medical attention, half of them TEENren. Those aged 5 to 18 years old are especially vulnerable as are TEENren two years of age and younger. Elderly people and home service providers, such as mailmen and meter readers, are among those frequently bitten. The American Society for Reconstructive Surgery announced in 2012 that 27,752 persons had reconstructive surgery following a dog bite. One third of all its 2012 insurance liability claims involved dog bites, according to State Farm Insurance. The average dog bite claim costs $30,000. In 2010 to 2014, an average of 33 people per year in the U.S. received fatal dog bite injuries. U.S. Dog Bite Fatalities: Breeds of Dogs Involved, Age Groups and Other Factors Over a 13-Year Period (2005 to 2017). We wrote the book on dog bites in Ohio.

Thank you! read more. Even if you could draw its family tree, there's no way to predict an animal's "wolfiness," says Stephen L. Zawistowski, PhD, executive vice president and science advisor for the ASPCA. "I've seen ads for animals that are '98 percent pure wolf,' but these are bogus numbers," he says. "These claims are based on the misguided belief that genes blend like food coloring: if you take half red and half blue, you get a nice, even purple." In reality, he says, genes "blend" more like marbles. Say you have a dog, represented by 20 red marbles, and a wolf, represented by 20 blue ones. If you breed the two,

5 you'll get 10 marbles from each parent, so you'll have half of each color; this is an F1 (Filial 1, or first filial generation) cross. But in subsequent generations, you'll get a random assortment of red and blue from each parent. So the individual offspring of two F1, 50/50 wolfdogs (an F2 cross, a generation removed from full wolf) could have anywhere from threequarters wolf genes and one-quarter dog genes to three-quarters dog and one-quarter wolf yet all will be considered one-half wolf. Thus, he says, you can see enormous variations among wolfdogs, even those who come from the same litter. " terrorists of the dog world"? Wow. You do realise that the bad reputation and behaviour of this breed (and other breeds) have been caused by human beings? Deliberately over-breeding and changing their traits and behaviour at the expense of their sanity. We are responsible for these "statistics" you talk about. You and the author of this article are the ignorant ones. We wrote the book on dog bites in Ohio. All of the information you need to deal with your dog bite is inside. In the 13-year period of 2005 through 2017, canines killed 433 Americans. Pit bulls contributed to 66% (284) of these deaths. Combined, pit bulls and rottweilers contributed to 76% of the total recorded deaths. Breeds of Dogs Involved in Fatal Human Attacks in the United States Between 1979 and 1998, by Sacks JJ, Sinclair L, Gilchrist J, Golab GC and Lockwood R, J Am Vet Med Assoc, 2000 Sep 15;217(6): The combination of pit bulls (76) and rottweilers (44) over this 20-year period includes purebred and crossbred dogs from Table 2 ( Page 3 ). I spent 30 minutes on the phone with a very intelligent, caring guy (I wish I could remember his name). I need to move on in my life but I am afraid to admit my marriage is failed.

When you have the tallest and largest dog in the world, being 44 inches long, it is quite obvious he is not going to sit calm. This German breed of dog has seven fatality cases to its name, so it is not-sodangerous. In fact, Great Dane can be very loving if they are well trained and taken very good care of. So get your Great Dane only if you can devote enough time to train it and play with it. The dog seeks physical attention and pampering from its master and that is what makes it dangerous at times. Earlier, it was referred to as German Mastiff because such a handsome dog deserved to be a luxury dog and not the one meant for working and doing chores. And you, Nextum, belong with ISIS since you are the moron defending illegal dog fighters just like this idiotic writer who give these pit bulls a bad name and are spreading more misinformation. With 66 fatalities to their name, Pit Bulls are the most dangerous breed of dogs in the world. They were developed as fighter dogs and need the same amount of socialization and training as any other dog to be tamed. But you cannot trust nature! Many countries have banned Pit Bulls too due to their not-so-good reputation. Who would want such an aggressive dog around? Many countries have even banned this breed to stop the illegal sport of dog fighting. Slater & Zurz is an excellent firm. I was assisted by John Lynette. He was always on top of things and made sure to help protect my family and I. He's very easy to work with and easy to communicate with. I had gotten into two different auto accident. One being a hit and run, the other a car rear ended our van and totaled it. John helped my family in both cases to make sure we were taken care. The case where we got rear ended took kind of long is because the people that were at fault, their attorney took forever on their end, but John went above and beyond to talk to those other attorneys and got them to hurry up and settled our case quickly.
