The bustling town of Berri has come to a halt this week. A town so full of life has been reduced to desolate and lonely streets. The reason? An unruly pack of savage canines, patrolling the streets and attacking those who dare to leave their houses. Authorities are still investigating where the pack of dogs has come from, and claim they don’t currently have the resources to stop them.
“We don’t know where they came from, but their numbers are growing.”
“It appears that the original group has been recruiting local dogs to their pack,” police spokesperson Kay Nina said.
“We’ve attempted to use the K-9 units, but that just resulted in our law enforcement dogs joining the wild pack ,which only exacerbated the issue. So while we work on investigating the group more and forming a plan to stop them, we ask that residents remain at home to avoid being attacked.”
With the police and council currently unable to stop the dogs, residents are growing frustrated. Local mother (who wishes to remain anonymous), claims she has been hounding the council about the issue, but they won’t listen.
“It’s time for the council to step in and do something. The dogs have worked out what times we leave the house and wait outside every day. We can’t even leave the house, let alone walk our kids to school.”
The Berri council claims they are working with police to put together a plan of attack, but still need a few more weeks to assemble the resources.
