A Sahuarita man was cited Monday after his  SIBERIAN HUSKIES  jumped into several backyards and killed two poodles and a cat. A third dog was attacked and injured, police said.
Demetrius Kavathas, 30, was cited on two counts each of Prohibited Acts for the bites, vaccinations required, license required and dogs at large, according to Sahuarita police. The dogs were taken to the Humane Society.
Police and Sahuarita's animal control officer were called about 9:40 a.m. after the attacks in the area of the 14000 block of Camino El Foso, in central Rancho Sahuarita. The officers found the dogs and took them into custody, police said.

This behavior is not terribly unusual for Siberian huskies. This breed seems to have a more feral temperament than most other breeds of dogs. In addition, huskies are escape artists. Whereas most are not dangerous with people other than infants, people owning this breed need to take extra precautions to confine them so that this does not happen. I personally believe that huskies' high prey drive and their failure to recognize infants as human beings contributes to their tendency to kill infants.

I have a part Husky dog. I'm not sure I would ever get a full bred. I don't leave my dog unattended so that she can escape my backyard. She goes on frequent walks and I keep her occupied the rest of the time she's not sleeping. I don't understand people that get multiple dogs, then ignore them and leave them outside to fend for themselves.

Anon 7:17, you brought up well known issues with Huskies. They also cannot be off-leash. They can run away and never come back. They do escape their enclosures. They are working dogs, so they must be given something to do.

If people don't have the time to invest in their Huskies, then don't get one!
