Dog on the attack: West Vancouver, BC

This dog is attacking us. He’s just 5m/15ft away and he’s going for me.

He ran from behind the bushes and went for me. He didn’t bark.

I took my photos, stood up ready for the attack, but I didn’t move. I was ready. At the last second, his owner whistled and he turned around and went back to his owner.

I screamed at the owner that he needs to keep his dog on a leash, he turned around and they walked away, it was a very fast walk.

Wikipedia claims that there are about 4.5 million Americans bitten by dogs every year, they also state that there are between 6,000 to 13,000 people each year hospitalized in the United States for these bittings.

In Canada, where I live, there is no study that keeps track of the bittings. Each province makes their own kind of weird and incomprehensive regulations. Like in Quebec where people are not allowed to use a collar to walk their dog. All dogs must use a body harness which results in dogs pulling harder and people falling, especially in the winter.
