Save Yourself in a Dog Attack
In case of a dog-attack emergency, make like a rock or a tree.
The tragedy of the 12-year-old boy killed by his familys Pit Bulls in San Francisco once again highlights the importance of providing information that will help people survive such dog attacks and perhaps the need for laws that encourage and require dog owners to be responsible for their dogs. Any large, powerful breed of dog will, occasionally, cause serious injury, even death. Small dogs can certainly bite, too, though they normally have less potential to do serious harm (the Pomeranian who killed a six-week-old infant in California in 2000 notwithstanding).
