Wife deployed OC spray this morning
My wife was out walking this morning with our dog. She was on one of the routes she frequents when a dog crossed the street, barred teeth, and repeatedly circled her and our dog, closing the circle as it drew nearer.
She yelled repeatedly at the dog to stop without success. She deployed her OC and sprayed the dog. The dog ran back to its yard. She and our dog made their way home.
She was visibily shaken when she got home, quite upset actually. I know it took a lot for her to spray another dog because she loves animals so much. She truely felt threatened by the encounter. She handled herself well and I am proud that she maintained her composure and was able to deploy the OC as I trained her, with success.
She also reported the incident to the local animal control.
