Those Saint Louis Blues

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?
