I have recently started listening to Welcome to Night Vale and I love the absurd land and quirky characters. It's really appealing and interesting to listen to.
I imagined that the radiation (or whatever other freaky crap goes on in Night Vale) turned the feral dogs (a.k.a. plastic bags) into anthropomorphised dog-men. This is one of the stronger members of the group.
"Sheriff’s secret police confirmed that the dog pack has already attacked a group of elementary school children this morning, at around eight, as they were getting on the bus. Injuries were minor, as the children protected themselves ably with their school-issued nerve gas canisters and automatic pistols.The dogs’ motives are not yet known, although authorities believe they could be meth and/or gang- related.
If you haven't started listening to WTNV I would strongly recommend that you do because it is bizarre and wonderful! (:
