Not all attackers are human....
Me and my wife moved into our lovely new home about 4 months ago. We live in a nice neighborhood and everything so I do feel pretty safe.
About a month ago I was taking a walk with my wifes dog....she weighs about 10 pounds....
Me and the dog are walking down this long stretch of road when this LARGE pitbull walks into the middle of the road from a side street.
I instantly know that something is going to happen, so I start walking back the way we came, when the dog takes off running toward us.
I do NOT have my gun on me.. I should have been atleast OC, which I normaly do. so I go for my knife (a spyderco chinook 3) the dog lunges for our dog who is now hidding behind me trying to run. I kicked the attacking dog a few times in the head and throat which brought his attention to me and he starts going for my face/throat.
I could bring myself to open the blade and stab the dog so I just used it as a Kubitan and just started pounding the top of the attacking dogs head all the while landing some kicks in.
Eventually he kind of backs off and I can see he is bleeding on top of his head and is acting kind of hurt. Eventually a person from a house near by comes running out with a bat and the dog takes off.
So I call my brother who is an LEO in my area and make a report about some crazed dog running around the area.
Long story short, always come ready even if it is just a walk with your dog something WILL happen!
Had I of had my gun on me Im sure I would have just shot the dog,( I have lived on a farm my whole life shooting an animal is no problem) but to me cutting a living creater was a lot harder to do.
Next time I wont heasitate, and next time ill have my gun.
