Border bust: Barking dog earns her kibble (video)


Ding-caliby Pamela Powers Hannley

When my dogs race out the doggie door at night and start barking at passers-by, I figure they're just doing their job–warning ne'er-do-wells to move along and not linger by my gate. After all, there are plenty of seedy characters wandering the dimly-lit streets of midtown and downtown Tucson at night. If you live near the US-Mexico border, the seedy characters your barking dog encounters could be much more dangerous than drunken students, hookers, or small-time dope dealers.

After the jump, watch what this Bisbee dog found outside of her fence.



  1. We’ve got a wildlife/motion detector camera set up in the San Pedro River next to our old ranch house (guessing about 7-8 miles from here, from the looks of the terrain.) Usually just get deer, javalina, raccoons, the occasional bobcat or turkey. It’s been a couple years since we got 3 UDAs (no drug backpacks, just guys moving through) and this last weekend it snapped a couple of Border Patrol. If these dogs worked for me I’d be out getting them a steak or two.
