The expression "release the hounds!" is used most often in a comedic context in modern American English. I'm not sure what the original context was (fox hunting? fugitive tracking? evil lord?), but in modern media, it is used when a wealthy person wants to chase someone off their property. For example, it has frequently been used in the Simpsons, when Monty Burns wants to get rid of someone, he will shout, "release the hounds!" The implication is that he has ferocious hunting dogs that are also trained to attack people, and that if they are let out of their pens, they will attack the intruder. Is there a similar expression in Spanish? Literally, it would be something like "¡suelten a los sabuesos!", but I'm not sure if this is an expression that is used historically, or if it is a set phrase like "release the hounds" has become in modern American entertainment. Any (relevant and thoughtful) ideas are welcome.
