Our area has a dog problem.
I didn't used to be afraid of dogs. I've gotten that way since moving here.
Do you remember when 4 dogs charged at us? I'm still mad about that.
It doesn't seem to matter that I've called animal control several times and wrote an e-mail about dogs in our area. It's still a problem.
A couple of weeks ago, 5 dogs attacked a woman and killed her in our town. The owner of 2 of the dogs came out of his house and the dogs then attacked him. He had his leg amputated because of it.
Tonight I found out that a guy in the next town over was attacked by his pit bull when he had a seizure. The pit bull killed him.
There are several houses that I go by on my daily walks that have large dogs. I am so scared of them that I have started going to the other side of the road just to get further away from them. I hate it when they bark at me. I'm not even on their property and they find it necessary to act like I'm an intruder. Jerks. It's not like I'm marking their territory. I'm just walking. On the public sidewalk.
I'm completely freaked out about this dog problem.
