Has Detroit really gone to the dogs? She begs to differ

NEED TO KNOW
  • Shelter owner does not agree with city's portrayal in recent report that says 50,000 canines roam the streets
  • Report: Pit bulls, aggressive breeds dominate packs & many were abandoned by owners

Morning Express viewers are still buzzing about a recent report that says about 50,000 dogs are supposedly running wild in Detroit.        

Bloomberg characterized it like this: Abandoned dogs roam Detroit in packs as humans dwindle. The report says as jobs -- and people -- left the city, they left their dogs behind. Now they roam in dangerous packs, breed and even take over abandoned houses for shelter.

However, Kristen Huston, who runs the non-profit All About Animals rescue shelter in Detroit, says that report and others like it are overly sensational. She spoke with Robin Meade on Friday and says while there is certainly a problem, her experience with stray dogs in the city has been vastly different.
