Probably not what happened, but still.
This. No matter what anyone says, we're not all dog whisperers. I've had too many incidents with other peoples ****ty, uncontrolled pets to not seek additional information. Frankly, Rugbythug's reference to his neighbors truly hit home. About 3 years ago, I punched a beagle in the head hard enough to stop it from attacking my children and I would do it again. The only regret I have is that I didn't punch it square enough to not have to do it again.
I'd like the full story. I've seen some crazy animals that I would not have a problem protecting myself and/or family with a machete, because of their behavior. Frankly, I wish I had had a machete at the time.
