His son was a substitute teacher at the local schools too. Sorry, off topic. Carry on.True Story
... when G Gordon Liddy lived here in Fort Washington [actually I think he still does - I saw him at the polling place in 2008] .. a friend of mine strolled down G's driveway trying to cut over to a friends house ... and was greeted in the yard by the G man himself, with a 12g shotgun ... my friend beat a hasty retreat and took the long way around ...
+1 Scar to prove it.Most vicious dog I ever encountered was a damn poodle!
Just gotta keep your head and know what to do. Worst case, you get a mangled forearm, dogs ends up dead. Of course, if you do have a gun use that, but if you dont, and there is only one dog, unless it outweighs you, you can take it.Are you for real? How about if we throw you in a pit with a vicious dog and no weapons and see how that works out for you.
See? Easy. Now what kind of vicious dog are we talking about?Just gotta keep your head and know what to do. Worst case, you get a mangled forearm, dogs ends up dead. Of course, if you do have a gun use that, but if you dont, and there is only one dog, unless it outweighs you, you can take it.
Oh, now you're trying to talk sense to all the internet forensic experts who can tell everything about a situation by a few photographs?Would like to point out two things;
1) Just because the dog's body is facing in one direction doesn't mean that is the direction the dog was headed in when it was shot. The round did not kill the dog instantly so the dog may have ran around for a second or two before he dropped. Also, the round may have spun the dog around when the dog was hit. I don't think the dog just dropped the instant it was hit, it continued to move and probably not in the direction it was headed.
2) Just because the dog was shot in the back doesn't mean the dog was traveling away from the shooter. Remember, the shooter is standing 2 to 3 feet higher then the target, the shooter would be shooting downward so the round could travel over the head and into the back of the dog.
Hopefully it's not a Mastiff... or a Great Dane... Or a Saint Bernard...Which is why I don't want to hear those silly comparisons between attacking pitbulls and attacking chihuahuas. The pitbull, or any large dog, is going to do significantly more damage than a little yapper.
