This happened to my wife yesterday...
My wife and my mother-in-law were walking our dogs ( a Border collie and a Shepard mix) close to finishing their walk, 5 houses away from our house the neighbor's son came home opened the garage door and their 80+ lb pitbull came charging out. The kid tackled the dog but was not controlling the dog, the dog was going off the Richter scale and dragging him down the driveway. My wife yelled over and told him to control the dog and take the dog back in the garage! My wife saw the father standing in the garage not helping the son with the dog, at that point when my wife told the kid to control the dog, the father came out of the garage carrying a large wooden stick yelling obscenitys at my wife and mother-in-law telling her my wife had no right telling his son what to do with his dog!. My wife tried to tell him all she wanted was for his son to control the dog! He kept yelling and swinging his stick at my wife from the middle of the street, she continued walking down the street to our house terrified of what else this man is capable of!
Now she is terrified of even walking down to the mailbox for fear of the crazy man turning his dog loose on her! This Pitbull appears to be a fighter...lots of scars on his face, very aggressive. My wife didn't call 911 for fear of of this raging man coming after her us after the cops visiting him. I am gone most of the day, 5 days a week. If I would have been there when the incident happened, I am positive there would have had a different outcome, but I was not, and now I am concerned for her safety while I am gone.
I am needing some help, what is the forums thoughts/comments?
