Given the number of dog-owners in a particular district who would rather turf-out Poochie than feed with dwindling rations, packs of hungry dogs would present a larger threat than humans
Any tips on how to survive a dog-pack encounter??

You have made some very good points here. My only reason for leaving the city is to avoid the confrontation, chaos, violence and possible disease that would follow sit.X. Of course it could be possible to survive the way you described. I like the idea of the vitamins.Good point there.I don't think I could bring myself to eat a pet or a rat, but in that type of environment I may change my mind. Great thread and good ideas.Keep em coming!

Dealing with dog packs is tuff. The main idea is to become alpha. In order to become alpha you have to take out the alpha and then whip beta into line. then the rest of the pack will follow you. But if your not into wrestling half wild starved dogs try one of those compressed air siren It scares the snot out of most animals but it is also a very quick way to tell the rest of the survivors in the city "hay I'm here". Of course a shot gun blast to the alpha is a very sad but safe way to scare the pack away. I will keep adding as I think of stuff. I actually had training in urban survival in the military thats ware a lot of this information is coming from.
