JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — A university in Mississippi’s largest city is warning students to be on guard amid complaints about a pack of dogs barking and threatening people walking through campus.
Jackson State University this week sent a notice to students and others associated with the school.
WAPT-TV reports that the university has been deluged with reports about the dogs. Officials tell the TV station that staff members and students are feeding the animals, making the problem worse.
The university is asked that people not feed, approach or pet the animals.
