The question of how many stray animals are in Detroit has been talked about ever since Bloomberg News put out this piece with the typical "Detroit is a hellhole" headline:
Abandoned Dogs Roam Detroit in Packs as Humans Dwindle
Chris Christoff reported that the city had "as many as 50,000 stray dogs."
Michigan Radio's Sarah Cwiek reported that other groups said there's no question that the number has been "wildly inflated."
Tom McPhee of the World Animal Awareness Society estimated there were between 1,000 to 3,000 stray dogs in the city.
Now, yet another estimate has been published.
