Those Saint Louis Blues

June 17th, 2013 - 10:01 am

Meanwhile, back near my old stomping grounds:

Dangerous dogs are becoming more of a problem in parts of north St. Louis County.

It’s so bad, some people say they’re afraid to go out for a morning jog.

Resident Carolyn Immer says she was attack and now has a hole in her leg.

“I felt like I was out in the middle of nowhere and there was nobody around to help,” Immer says. “I was screaming for a long time – it seemed like a long time lets put it that way.”

When I saw the headline, I just assumed that they meant this was going on in the city of St. Louis. The City and the County divorced ages ago, and are completely separate and distinct political entities. The City has been depopulating for decades, so I kind of expected maybe packs of wild dogs roaming around, Detroit-style

But North County? It’s unexciting in a comfortably suburban way.

So what the hell is up with the attack dogs?

The midwest has a nasty coy-dog problem. Abandoned dogs and coyotes that have learned to live like rats--the half-breeds are nasty buggers with no fear of humans.

That could be part of what's going on here.

They may be abandoned dogs. When the economy went south in '08-09, lots of folks had to uproot. Many abandoned the family pets in the wild. Most pets, of course, died, but I am sure some survived. This may be them.

The only place in CO I was ever afraid of "wild dogs, running loose" was Manitou Springs, where once I had to stand between the dog and the baby carriage. (The baby was three months old.) Some idiots had attack dogs (literally trained to attack. We later found out they were child pornographers, so, hey, they didn't want strangers wandering in, I guess) in a house with a four foot fence. They came out and got the dogs when the heard the commotion and before I had used the bear spray. Which is good, because after using it on the dogs, I was going to use it on the owner.

Why don't they import some wolves (wolf) from California. That would take care of their dog problem. (Or maybe some mountain lions from western Colorado, they have plenty and the cats LIKE eating dogs off of peoples' front porches)

You want to know about St. Louis Co.?

2012 Election Result:
St. Louis County 100.0% Reporting
B. Obama (i) Dem 56.2% 294,735
M. Romney GOP 42.5% 223,102
G. Johnson Lib 1.1% 5,705
V. Goode CST 0.2% 1,086

One of only 3 counties in the whole state that reliably votes Democratic:

see www.politico.com/2012-election/results/president/missouri/

These are the same people that complain about deer eating up everything in sight but won't continence any effective measure to deal with it. There, Gaia is well-loved. Personally, I'm for relocating into St. Louis County every cougar that can be found in Missouri just for the pure entertainment value.

Its also the bizarre trend in this country to be paralyzed by silly stuff. When I was a kid, dangerous dogs running around loose disappeared. Now we throw our hands up and faint.

Over a century ago, there was actually a whole market niche of handguns specifically marketed for bicyclists to use against attacking dogs. Indeed, so many that a trademark - "Velodog" - became a generic term.

Sounds like a slow news day, prompted by perhaps a handful of people who won't keep their poorly-socialized dogs locked up.
