  •  Well, here's mine. (2+ / 0-)

    I was living back in the woods, and regularly walked out 35 acres alone. Borrowed a revolver to try out. Was enjoying the nice day when I heard a bunch of something coming toward me. Pack of 5 feral dogs came over the hill. Veered out of their track and split 2 and 3 when they saw me, heading my way. I shot first at the 3, then at the 2, sending them away with a couple of yelps.
    I bought the gun.

      feral dogs, too. He was on duty with the Army in Egypt about 17 years ago. As part of his ongoing PT he went for runs in the area and in this instance was surrounded by feral dogs. He was unarmed because he was out for a run. Although concerned for his personal safety he kept his head and picked up some rocks and threw them at the leaders. The animals backed off.

      They were likely wondering if you had something to eat, not wanting to attack you.

      When I worked as a garbage hauler there were dogs at the dump. They were far more interested in the garbage than they were interested in us.
