My growing hatred towards aggressive dogs
Last night returning from my walk around 10:30. A neighbor 3 houses down lets her 4 dogs run free to do their business in everyone else's yards. She does this every night. She does it later in the evening because no one will see. Yes, I have had many talks with her and I have contacted the animal control who said they can do nothing to prevent it.
Of the 4 dogs there is a smaller white poodle that is the most aggressive one. It came charging down the sidewalk toward me. It kept lunging toward me in what appeared to be an attempt to bite. I tried to continue toward my house but it would circle back and try to bite my ankles.
I reached my driveway where I saw a bagged news paper laying there. I kept the flash light on the dog slowly bent down picked up the news paper and rolled it up tightly. As I attempted to go inside the dog once again surged at me. I then let him have it and threw the news paper close range as hard as I could. I nailed him in the belly. He yelped and ran away to his owner who was standing there watching.
She said..."don't you hit my dog!" I said ... "either leash him or next time it will be worse."
My wife says it's not the dogs fault and that I shouldn't have hit him. I say next time he gets the pepper spray in the face. (I could break his back with my 9 iron but I'll hold off on that one) This will probably result in the dog owner calling the police.
I hate that stink'in little poodle or any other aggressive dog that invades my space and I have no compassion toward them.
