Dogs cause up to $350,000 in damage to car dealership – The Daily Beast

When employees at a Houston car dealership arrived earlier this month, they found their vehicles so badly damaged that at least one employee suspected a “wolf” had attacked.

But the reality was even more bizarre: surveillance footage showed two dogs literally tearing the vehicles apart, tearing off bumpers and other body panels with their teeth.

“You just never believe that a dog has the strength to tear a car to pieces like that,” Gaby Fakhoury, the sales manager at G Motors, told ABC 13 Houston in a news report this week. The car dealership’s finance manager, Imran Haq, told the news channel he was sure “a wolf” was responsible for the debris until he viewed the footage.

At least five cars were damaged in three separate nighttime shootings this month, Fakhoury said, estimating the damage at $100,000 to $350,000. A cat appears to be at the center of all these violent attacks. The employees assume that the dogs’ real target is a clever cat that is hiding in the vehicles.

But for now, the raids are keeping everyone on edge, and staff are trying to make sure they don’t come into contact with the canine culprits.

“Nobody wants to leave their car behind anymore. They want to make sure they come straight to the office,” Fakhoury told ABC13. “You’re so scared.”
