LAC LA RONGE, Sask. — A reserve in northern Saskatchewan is killing stray dogs that are forming packs and becoming aggressive.
The Lac La Ronge Indian band is organizing the canine cull this week.
Officials with the Northern Animal Rescue group based in La Ronge say they don’t like the cull, but understand the reserve doesn’t have many other options.
Tayven Roberts, an official with the band, says it can’t afford to spay and neuter all the animals.
He says there have been recent complaints about wild dogs chasing children.
Stray dogs have long been a problem on remote reserves across the Prairies, and some of the animals have killed children.
