Chaille Morgan, 27-years old, was killed by a pack of dogs on the Meskwaki Settlement.
Woman Killed by Dogs
Tama County, IA - On Monday, the Meskwaki Nation Police Department published a post on Facebook alerting citizens to a fatal dog attack. In "all kaps," the notice states, "There was a vicious dog attack this afternoon by a large pack of dogs that resulted in the death of a young adult female community member. The attack took place in the area of Springs Road. Due to the sensitivity of the situation, MNPD will not be releasing any additional information until a later date."
All of the dogs involved in the vicious attack "have now been terminated," MNPD stated. The location of the fatal dog attack is on the Meskwaki Settlement, close to the Meskwaki Tribal Center, and a mile southeast of the Meskwaki Casino, off of U.S. Highway 30. The settlement is an unincorporated community in Tama County, Iowa, which includes more than 8,000 acres, according to its Wikipedia entry. There are about 800 individuals living on the settlement.
One commenter on the MNPD page, Ray YoungBear, indicates this dog pack was a cause for concern for community members. "I was so afraid of this," he wrote. "Three large-headed ones in the hills" had recently been dispatched too. The term "large-headed" dogs is nearly exclusively used for bully breeds -- pit bull and mastiff-type dogs. Rottweilers could be indicated as well. There are few, if any, functional Rez type dogs today that meet the parameters of being "large-headed."
In December 2021, Duke Little Whirlwind, 58-years old, was killed by a pack of dogs on the Northern Cheyenne Indian Reservation in Lame Deer, Montana. He was found dead, lying face down on a dirt road stripped naked -- the dogs had ripped off all of his clothing. In May of 2021, Lyssa Upshaw, 13-years old, was killed by a pack of vicious dogs on the Navajo Nation in Fort Defiance, Arizona. "Her clothes and pieces of flesh were scattered around," media reports stated.
Mauling Victim Identified
On Friday, the Meskwaki Nation Police Department identified the victim as 27-year old Chaille Morgan, of Tama. The Meskwaki Nation Police Chief also said there were no pit bulls among the pack of mixed-breed dogs that fatally attacked Morgan. The attack happened Monday near the Tribal Center in the area of Springs Road. Her obituary states that she attended South Tama Schools. The large pack of dogs involved in the attack has since been identified and terminated.

Law enforcement departments across the United States should release consistent "baseline" information to the media and the public after each fatal dog mauling, including these items.
Pitbulls infecting every dog population even in remote areas.
Soon, there won’t be any non-pit bull dogs that aren’t purebred dogs destroyed by inbred genetic anomalies.
Although people everywhere seem to believe inbreeding ruins dogs, this simply is not true.
If one breeds a vicious pit bull to a vicious Rottweiler, one has made an outcrossed litter which likely has bad temperament.
Different breeds are produced by breeding for specific traits. Border collies were selectively bred for herding. Pit bulls were developed by selectively breeding for killer dogs.
Inbreeding is actually horrible for dogs, I’m not sure why you don’t think it’s a big deal. The dog breeds with the highest Coefficient of Inbreeding (COI) are the least healthy, these include breeds like Pugs, French Bulldogs, and English Bulldogs. Pit bulls, especially “exotic bullies” are also very inbred. You typically don’t see nearly the amount of issues with working line dogs, whether physically or mentally, because they don’t necessarily need to adhere to a strict breed standard, they just need to do the job they were bred for well.
She was mauled to death by three type breed of dog pit bull rottweiler or german shepherd.I know darn well she wasn’t killed by a bunch of dalmatians .this was the fourth pitbull mauling.have you notice every time there a pitbull incident. The media always labeled the pitbull .either as pitbull type dog pitbull mix dog or large muscle type dog.
Packs of dogs of about any breed are dangerous. The makeup of the pack is related to the breeds and their mixes involved. Dogs in a pack will kill members of the pack.
The worst bite I ever got was inflicted by a spayed female Dalmatian named Purdy. She hung from my ear tearing skin and cartilage. Owner had no control of her.
Purdys owner told neighborhood children Purdy only nipped me. I allegedly went home and put ketchup down my neck. To me, seven sutures isn’t a nip.
“Large headed”, aka block headed beasts. I’d bet my life bully breeds did this even if this statement wasn’t said.
