Posts Tagged ‘dog attacks’

Dogs are the friends of people, or, at least, of the people who own them. But an unknown stray dog may present serious danger to you if it decided to attack you for some reason. Some of them really look and behave like city predators, so you should get prepared to stand this foe.

If a dog just threatens to attack you, it is likely that it is untrained as a trained dog attacks without warning. But if you deal with a stray animal which growls and grins you have some time to assess the situation. Do not run away as it will switch on the dog’s instinct of a predator and it will run after you. Silently observe the territory (a cry can provoke attack), bend slowly and pick some appropriate object, like a can, sand, or stone. If there is nothing of this kind near you, put off one of your shoes and aim a blow with it. In most cases it will prevent a stray dog from attacking you. Then bypass dog’s territory without turning your back to it.
