Seven Puppies Dumped at Rosebud Dialysis Clinic Amid Wild Dog Crackdown

A dialysis unit on the Rosebud Indian Reservation became the temporary home of seven unwanted puppies Tuesday amid a roundup of wild canines following a deadly dog attack this weekend.

When staff opened the Davita dialysis clinic north of Rosebud early Tuesday morning, they found seven scared, mix-breed puppies behind a large spool and a corner of the building.

A spokesperson for the clinic said the puppies were probably eight weeks old. Clinic staff put the puppies in blankets to keep them warm. A tribal member who likes dogs came later Tuesday morning to care for the puppies.

A source at the reservation said people are concerned that their dogs may be killed as the Rosebud Sioux Tribe cracks down on feral dogs following the mauling death of Julia Charging Whirlwind Saturday.

Monday, according to the Lakota Voice, the tribal council announced a plan of action to destroy feral dogs and issued a public service announcement. According to the announcement:

The Rosebud Sioux Tribe Police Department in conjunction with the Rosebud Sioux Trib eGame Fish and Parks and the Rosebud Sioux Tribal Council is immediately enacting an effort to eradicate dogs that appear to be a nuisance, vagrant, feral, sickly or vicious.

The Lakota Voice also reported that Rosebud Police Officers and Rosebud Game Fish and Parks Rangers have been authorized to dispose of dogs that appear to be a threat to the community.

Tribal authorities destroyed the dogs that killed Charging Whirlwind, according to the Lakota Voice.
