This is such a dreary day, so I thought I would bring up my recent dog attack. (We are fine.)
Three men saved our lives when we were attacked by 2 large American bulldogs.
The attack really scrared me, and almost killed my dog. But now that it is over, i realize that there are no weapons that a person like me can carry.
Maze and pepper spray will not work against a bulldog. A gun in my neighborhood??? Not for me. In a panic situation my ability to hang on to a large dog, and defend myself is limited.
Wasp spray can blind a dog, and if mis-directed can come back to me or my dog.
I have been looking into bear spray. Do any of you have experience with any of these?
Even in my garden I realize that against an attacking pit bull, I have little defense. It is terrible to think about pulling together my gear for working in the garden, and having a weapon as part of what I need to carry.
What do you do?
By the way I live in Broken Arrow in what i consider a nice housing addition. This is not an area of town that people would fear to walk in, but there are many vicious animals in so many home.
