Dog owners should realize that if they allow their animals to roam loose they will have to take responsibility for their dogs actions. If not, this would be setting a bad example if there are no consequences to the owners and these animals are allowed freed only to perhaps kill again helpless livestock, a child or adult that cannot defend themselves.

      Roaming packs of dogs are a danger to everyone. I'm sure they would attack people as well.

      My husband and I leased a horse pasture to an alpaca owner for a year or so. During that time a pack of wild dogs, including various breeds, attacked and savagely tore up the herd of alpacas. They were in a pasture that was surrounded by rabbit fence as well as wood fencing but it did not prevent the dogs from getting in and brutally injuring these peaceful animals.

      I don't believe dogs should roam free. Owners are responsible for their actions if they do.

      Because it's a criminal act to do this to animals. And the last time I checked, alpacas were animals.

      In Oregon dogs have to be on a leash unless they are in a fenced dog park.
