(HOUSTON) — A pack of wild dogs were marauding their way through east Houston when they attacked a 13-year-old boy as he was coming home from school Thursday. Those dogs were all caught Friday and will be put to sleep.

BARC officials said nine dogs were involved. Eight male dogs were apparently going after a female in heat.
