Donnelly Rose Eaglestick, Young Mother, Mauled To Death By Stray Dogs On Remote Manitoba First Nation

h/t Marty

LITTLE GRAND RAPIDS, Man. — RCMP say a woman has died after being attacked by a large group of stray dogs in a remote Manitoba First Nation.

The Mounties say the 24-year-old woman was attacked while on her way home early Saturday morning in Little Grand Rapids.

Her body was found at a construction site hours later in the community 300 kilometres northeast of Winnipeg.

A forensic investigation determined she died from the animal attack and her death is not suspicious.

    “her death is not suspicious”

    I guess by the standards of people a few generations removed from the
    Stone Age and living in primitive and deplorable conditions, there’s nothing suspicious about her death, sure, why not. I’m sure the Liberals see this as part of the rich diversity that is Canada.

      We need a commission to look into this.

      • Alain

        Beat me to it. ha

      • terrence22

        Staffed by FIRST NATIONS PERSONS, of course, and payed for by whitey

        • bob e

          they don’t call us ‘pale face’ anymore .. ??

      • Clausewitz

        Better yet, a “Special” prosecutor. They seem to be all the rage these days.

  • dance…dancetotheradio

    Are they going to shoot the dogs?

    • That’s what I’m wondering. Is this a pest conrtol issue? Coyotes?

      • Stray dogs are an issue on some reserves.

        • k1962

          Why is that? My nephew had to go up to a reserve in Northern B.C. to do some work on one and he mentioned the packs of dogs.

        • Stray and mistreated dogs.

          I corrected that for you.

          I’ve witnessed terribly things done to dogs (and people) in communities like these.

          • Jabberwokk

            Exactly. A family member of mine is/was a foster home for dogs.Many of which come from the reserves. They have no regard for themselves and thus have no regard for anyone or anything. A hero must arise from among them to inspire and lead them out of the slavery of their own minds. Until then they will continue to degrade into complete irrelevancy and go extinct. A sad end for a people who once were the inspirations of fierceness and survival to be reduced to this by their own hands.

          • Civilisations evolve. Aboriginal people, by and large, chose to devolve.

            There is no excuse for the poor treatment of a useful animal.

          • lolwut? (Deplorable Hoser)

            Many of them are feral and in some cases Wolf-dog hybrids.

            Saw them in Sudbury and reserves along the Trans-Canada highway, they are not something you can just make friendly with and allow into your home.

            Feral cats are the same, it’s the small size that makes them mostly harmless.

          • I had a dog who was part wolf and part husky.

            He was all sweetheart.

            Any dog can be feral if treated as such. That there is a huge amount of feral animals on reservations should tell one something.

          • lolwut? (Deplorable Hoser)

            Because you were the Alpha, a source of protection, leadership and food. hand those over to animals in a wild setting and instinct takes over. throw in hunger and it’s game on. The weak become food.

            Even with domestic dogs, ones with an Alpha personality can turn on their owners if their ability to serve that purpose begins to slip. That dogs will take over that position once they see an opening.

            Pack animals follow a leader and have a pecking order
            humans can be at the bottom of that as well.

          • Yes, which can be said about any domesticated animal (or person).

      • bob e

        or wolves ..

    • k1962

      They should be.

    • Usually there is a culling, yes.

  • Tooth&Claw

    It’s rather odd. I seem to remember an article begging palefaces for funds to construct doghouses filled with straw bedding so reservation dogs could survive the winter. They are not brought inside homes.
    Apparently First Nation’s people don’t ‘own’ dogs individually. So then, who is responsible for these collectively neglected dogs forming a pack and attacking a resident of the reserve?

    • mauser 98

      city folk dump their unwanted dogs in remote areas
      Sudbury was bad years ago
      some farmers i know carry a rifle in southern Ontario
      dogs run down deer , turkeys etc

      • El Martyachi

        Yeah that’s how I grew up, but we’d shoot em straight away. On the rez it seems a habit to just let the packs roam around.

        • mauser 98

          it is strange…they got ammo galore

          • El Martyachi

            And they shoot EVERYTHING else, it seems. I dunno..

          • mauser 98

            ha!! ..hunting license?…what the hell is that?
            when Johnny Cruton first started his stupid gun registry..First Nations said it is a white mans law..does not apply to us
            Alan Rockhead said OK …northernmost reserves do not have to comply
            ‘northernmost’ never defined
            Caledonia is north of lake Erie..good enuff

          • El Martyachi

            I guess Caledonia was bound to come up…

          • mauser 98

            they never registered any gun

          • El Martyachi

            Maybe they’re like, halfways pets to people that get outta hand, but only sometimes?

          • El Martyachi

            Sorry I should clarify.. referent was the dogs, not the city folk.

      • Tooth&Claw

        I don’t dispute that animals are dumped by urbanites. My uncle owned a farm, I know people would dump these poor creatures. All my extended family have pet rescue animals from the local shelter.
        It does seem however that First Nations people have a different relationship with their animals than animal lovers do.

      • pettifog

        I can’t imagine Whitey heading to Little Grand Rapids to drop off his unwanted hounds. What is it, 400 miles from Winnipeg?

        • mauser 98

          rez has own dogs

          slickers dump just outside town…not as big as rez packs ..but there are problems

    • Millie_Woods

      Itsta no-good whiteman.

    • They all are.

  • Drunk_by_Noon

    I’m not certain what kind of mocking jokes I should make about this tragedy.
    Who is responsible?
    That’s easy, the white man’s racism killed her, they need reparations!

    • It’s probably lack of animal control, so I’m blaming hippies. This sort of thing has happened before. But I could be wrong, so I’m hoping people knowledgeable about northern Manitoba can clue me in.

      • k1962

        I blame the hippies for everything wrong with our society today.

        • ontario john

          I blame residential schools, Harper, global warming, and of course the Jews.

          • k1962

            I didn’t know you were a progressive 😉

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            I heard that “the Jews” ran the residential schools as some kind of tool of Zionism.

          • k1962

            The Jews should have run the residential schools. Rabbis and Hebrew teachers are terrible at disciplining and controlling kids. The First Nations would have retained their language and culture with them in charge.

            Actually I’m glad they weren’t in charge. Nice not to be blamed for something in this world, other than by you 😉

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        In consulting an atlas, it appears that Northren Manitoba is little more than a forbidden wasteland of ice and sorrow, and some wild dogs too.
        Besides, I thought the Indians traditionally ate dog, so this is like a herd of beef cattle getting loose and trampling some hapless ranch hand.
        Sort of, kind of, I think.

        • El Martyachi

          And hydro workers. Ya forgot hydro workers.

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            I said sorrow!

        • Alain

          You are thinking about the Sioux seven course meal: a six pack and a dog.

      • lolwut? (Deplorable Hoser)

        Dogs running wild on reserves is pretty common, even close to larger towns and cities. Lot’s of people, mostly kids have been mauled and even killed.

        If they start hooking up with the local wolf population then it gets even more dangerous because the pack hunting instincts comes bubbling to the top even faster.

        When I was a kid my uncle and his coworkers from the mine in Sudbury had to go out and kill a couple dozen dogs and wolf-dog hybrids because they were stalking kids around schools and playgrounds.

        That was the 70’s, so there were no protests in the streets when
        they tracked them down, penned them in and shot all of them.

        Political correctness is what keeps the issue mostly under the radar.

    • I don’t even know what they mean by “stray dogs”. They could mean stray coyotes, or semi-coyotes.

      • mauser 98

        57 varieties …yuppies get tired of their pets

        • bob e

          their children too

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        Coyotes are kind of nasty, but them taking on a fully grown adult is pretty rare.
        Not unheard of, but rare.
        Packs of dogs can get really aggressive, even if almost all the individual dogs are more or less tame.
        It’s a weird phenomena.

        • k1962

          Kind of like some people.

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            Kind of, yeah!

  • Dave

    You reap what you sow. It’s as simple as that. Treat your animals properly and this wouldn’t have happened.

  • I lived in a northern community. I saw how the residents treated their dogs.

    It is no surprise that they turn feral and attack people.
