Arkansas Town Abandons Strays in National Forest: Animal Control for Morons

You have to be dumb as a sack of hammers to think that stray dogs are better off left in a national forest to fend for themselves. But, that's what the mayor of an Arkansas town did.
[Town mayor James] Valley said the city street director released about 10 dogs into the forest Wednesday after the animals were fed and watered. About three dogs were kept to be put down by a veterinarian, he said.

"They are better off free," the mayor said Thursday in a telephone interview.

A spokeswoman for the U.S. Forest Service said the agency was not contacted by the city before releasing the dogs, and does not condone releasing animals into the forest.
