Residents said a pack of wild dogs is terrorizing their northwest Atlanta neighborhood. Neighbors blame the dogs for killing several cats. They said the pack is growing and getting more aggressive, and they're worried the dogs will attack their kids. A resident showed Channel 2 Action News pictures of the pack of dogs taken during the night from surveillance cameras mounted on the front porch of his Church Street home. "It's killed four cats and there's a couple cats missing, so we know the number is larger," his wife, Kathleen O'Loughlin said. She's worried about her cat that had a run-in with the dogs a few nights ago. "They had him cornered and they were attacking him," she said, but she's even more concerned about her kids. "They have been aggressive toward some people as well. In this neighborhood we have kids and pets, and we're really concerned the pack is growing and the dogs are getting more aggressive," she said. Neighbors suspect people are just dumping the dogs at the nearby Fulton County Animal Services, but not actually going inside. So the dogs never make it inside and end up roaming the streets. "It's scary. I carry a bottle of wasp spray every time I walk my dog because I know it can shoot at a far range and I can run." Jessica Arnold, another neighbor, said. Animal Control said they plan to set up a dog trap at O'Loughlin's house to try and catch the dogs one by one.
A Channel 2 Action News investigation finds thousands of local votes in the last presidential election didn’t count, though many should have.
