  • The guy was attacked for 10 minutes screaming death screams. Only 1 neighbor helped? How many houses packed with people heard him and did nothing? Thank goodness for the 1 hero
    guy who decided to help. Those dogs dont start with people. They kill mice then squirrels, cats first. Bigger and bigger animals. Once they get a taste of blood, you cant get that attack/hunt out of them. They will do it again.
