South Dakota reservation rounds up feral dogs after fatal attack

The Rosebud Sioux Tribe in South Dakota began rounding up and destroying wild dogs on Tuesday under an emergency order issued after a woman was fatally attacked on the reservation over the weekend.

Julia Charging Whirlwind, 49, was attacked by a pack of wild dogs on Saturday morning in the Lower Swift Bear community on the reservation in south-central South Dakota, officials said.

Local media said the Mellette County sheriff had to kill two dogs before emergency workers could get to Whirlwind to try to help her.

The Rosebud council said on Monday the tribe would eradicate dogs that appear to be a nuisance, vagrant, feral, sickly or vicious.
