I can't imagine leaving that little fella there all alone for one minute. What if the dog circled around and came back for him?! He was probably terrified. It just struck me as weird to not carry him someplace safe or stay with him until she could flag someone down.

See my post above yours - we probably posted at about the same time.

So scary! Including the cat, not one I would like to mess with! So glad s/he was there.

My first thought was she was making sure the dog was gone.

I thought she might be grabbing a weapon, or circling around the van to make sure the dog was gone

Here's the article:

The boy's mother, Erica Triantafilo, was outside at the time. She said the dog was still hanging around and she tried to chase it away and it bit her as well.

The boy was taken to the hospital and received 10 stitches. He is now home recovering.

Triantafilo said her neighbors voluntarily had their dog quarantined.

Quarantined??? That dog should be dead. A dog that goes after an adult for some reason? Ok, shame on the owners, fine, and keep everyone safe from here on out.

A dog that goes after a small child like that? I don't care if it's prey, territorial, the kid stepped on it, whatever, any dog with a reaction like that to a child has a severe temperament flaw. One in which I have zero tolerance for.

I am inclined to agree. That dog is dangerous

The dog should totally be put down.

I read that its' illegal to kill an animal without quarantining it if it is suspected of rabies, but that seems strange to me as you can test for rabies after killing it. Maybe it's just cheaper to quarantine.

Here is a gif:

I have seen a dog run up someone and start attacking totally unprovoked before in real life. It was very scary. It's rare but it happens. Such dogs should be put down.

That cat is awesome though.

I wonder if it would be that it's a behavioural issue thats been building for a while without being dealt with. The dog seemed so confident in how it handled the situation.
I also wonder if the bike had anything to do with it.


Go cat go!
