that is terrible!
My father has the same complaint, how animals' lives are valued higher than humans, in some cases.
Anyways, I hope the animal control takes this in hand, goes by the house several times a week to verify that the woman is fulfilling her agreement.
What can you do, legally, to protect yourself? I mean you can't carry a gun and would pepper spray even help?? I'd think it would enrage a dog more. CArry a stick? I have no idea. I think if that dig is that protective of it's home that it becomes that aggressive, it needs to be chained. period.
I'm curious to see what the dog owners on this bb have to offer. I live in a city where most dogs are on a leash but it does bring up the problem of what can a human do to protect/deter an attack??
hugs and hope your wounds heals quickly. At the first sign of redness and heat, go see the Dr to make sure it's healing well.
