Dog bites are no joke, I’ve had friends nearly die from sepsis from one small tooth puncture.
For years I lived next to a rural junkyard on a desolate country road.
I occasionally had to stop at a stop sign adjacent to the Junkyard and the dogs were quick to learn my schedule and it was amazing how they worked as a pack and hid in wait for me in the initial days of my interactions with them.
The owner could have cared less about my concerns and I had to figure out how to deal with the problem.
I’m a lifelong dog owner and animal lover, that being said, I’ll kill a dog in a heartbeat if attacked but I really didn’t want to start a war with my neighbor by killing his dogs and fully understand the need for them.
What I did was kind of ridiculous but thankfully worked well.
I geared up by taping newspapers around my calf’s inside my boots , wore all my leather one day, open carrying my 9mm for backup. I had a pump spray bottle filled with ammonia in my tank bag and ten M80s.
I pulled up to the stop sign and started hucking M80s, the first one had them all hauling ass but I threw all of them for good measure, chasing and screaming at the dogs the whole time.
Those dogs never bothered me again!
