There has been a rash of violent stray dogs in the Altadena area closest to Altadena Elementary. We are residents in this area and have recently lost our loved pet chicken, Cheerio, to one of the stray dogs in this vicinity. I am asking you to spread the word to our community that if a stray dog is discovered to please don't ignore it. These animals are untrained, neglected & violent.
A week ago I was out in my fenced-in yard with my small dog. From out of nowhere a pack of stray dalmatians, shepherds & mutts tried to push one of our gates open in an attempt to attack my puppy. When we first moved here 2 years ago our 13 year old cat, Lucifer, disappeared without a trace. And now our chicken.I have attached pictures of the dog that attacked and killed our chicken and I will be heading to the house with the other stray dogs to get their photos as well.
I have lost a beloved cat & chicken and am very grateful I didn't lose my dog that day. These animals and their owners need to be dealt with immediately in order for peace to come to this community. Please help me spread the word.
