so just after the community was rocked by the latest dog/child attack. i was passing thru a nearby town and noticed an old lady standing motionless on the footpath and two pitt types were circling her and getting a prey bark on. plenty of people were seated nearer than me in my moving vehicle and they were just gwaking. did not seem right (DUH) so i pulled in illegally and asked if everything was OK, the old lady was almost in shock and said please help me, i got out and stood between her and the dogs without escalating the dogs who i am sure were about to attack. i walked the old lady to a nearby shop and she was so happy she said i was such a nice "young" man and pulled $5 from her purse and told me to go treat a nice young lady to a movie???
i encouraged the dogs to come up to me so i could throw them in my crate, as they came up the shop keeper said they yours, i said no so he then ran at them screaming and they bolted, he thought he done a real good thing - the idiot - the dogs were all over the road holding up trucks and buses. i asked them for local council number. due to amalgamation the nearest council was 2 hours away and they would only come if the dogs were contained, the police said it is a council matter and would only come if someone was attacked.
i left, and no i did not keep the $5.
