    Actually the worst injury I have had from an animal was a cat, mind you at the time my dog was trying to eat the cat (it was my parents cat, the dog was on the chain but silly cat came too close even though she knew not to) and I had grabbed her head so she couldn't shake the cat to death and the cat was trying to protect itself, I ended up with bite wounds on the base of my thumb and on my forearm and a crud loads of scratches, 5 hours afterwards I was in so much pain I was crying, I couldn't move my arm it felt like I had a broken wrist and a broke thumb, never felt anything like it. 4 months on I still have the scars from the puncture wounds and most of the scratches and my thumb still aches. BTW the cat was fine, didn't even seem sore afterwards and my dog didn't have 1 injury the turd.

    BL - I know some people don't like it but the best method I have ever found for getting an attacking dog off is to grab the dog by the back legs, lift up as high as you can and then when they release walk backwards. This means the dog cannot flick around and redirect onto you and leaves the least amount of damage on the dog being attacked, it is also a very quick way of separating the dogs.

    Couldnt agree more Dee, he stepped into a dogfight not exactly a dog attack.
    Must say getting a bit sick of the whole attack angle, dog fights have always been there and always will.

    I really don't see it as an attack....ie the dog targeted the man and went for him.
    If I stepped into a dog fight I would expect to be bitten.

    If I moved an injured dog off the road and was bitten is that an attack too?

    For all we know the smaller dog may have initiated it.

    That the lab should not have been there uncontrolled in the first place is a given.

    Yes but the Lab targeted the Jack Russell and attacked it. So still a dog attack as such just not attacking a person. I do see what you are saying, I am just pointing out that it was an attack as such. I am sure the man well and truly believes his dog was attacked.

    No I don't think moving an injured dog off the road and the dog biting you would constitute a "dog attack"

    I also think it is possible the JR started it but we will never know as the only witness is the man and I doubt he would have seen it if his dog was giving off nasty body language and he wouldn't admit it either if he did know.

    Totally agree it was a dog on dog attack, not dog on man.

    I appreciate your upset given whats being going on with your chosen breed lately but i really dont see the comparison between a man being bitten stepping into a dog fight and another dog entering a home and killing a child. The media shouldnt be playing this angle.
    Again dogs will always fight it just seems "attack" is the word of the moment. That said i certainly dont condone dogs roaming unattended regardless of breed.

    I am making no comparison between this incident and the death of a little girl at all.

    The media are not really either all they are doing is using this story to go back to talking about her death, the new laws etc. Any excuse to keep the hysteria alive and pull in readers.
