Rez dogs claim responsibility for garbage attack

Rez dogs have claimed responsibility for an attack that left four garbage bags completely destroyed.

The attack took place Tuesday on the Hollow Lake First Nation in Manitoba.

“Oh those darn dogs,” said Elsie Berens, a kokum from the community.

The first attack took place at approximately 9 am, when a rez dog tore at one of the garbage bags. A second assailant struck seconds later and then a third and fourth. As many as six dogs may have taken part in what’s being called a coordinated attack.

The entire assault took just seconds, witnesses say.

A local faction of rez dogs released a poorly-worded statement claiming responsibility for the attack on social media. However, the message has not been verified by authorities.
