A common scene we often see in the summertime is people taking advantage of the warm weather by being outdoors! Fellow neighbors walking their dogs, riding bikes, or out for walks – people simply like being outside.
But a threat to be mindful of while enjoying Mother Nature is a stray dog, or a dog on the loose without an owner in sight.
Stray or dangerous dogs without a leash can be very unpredictable and hard to keep under control. It can be very unsettling, especially when you realize there is a possibility that the dog may or may not have had its appropriate shots.
A member of Bikeforum.com under the username “Rolie,” posted a thread about his unfortunate encounter with a loose dog...
“My luck ran out last night! I was on a ride fairly close to home, and got bit by a dog that I have had bark and chase me before, but never tried to bite! I usually carry pepper spray when venturing into unknown areas, but did not have it last night. I ride the rural areas near my home, dogs running loose are part of every ride(...)”
