Ok....first of all, I know this animal personally and there's not a snowball's chance in hell that this dog "viciously" attacked this guy. At worst, the only immanent danger that he was exposed to was possible severe licking, with a high likelihood of copious amounts of slobber. Secondly, what business of yours was it to approach a vehicle(not yours), to which its owner had attached his dog? I've always been under the assumption that, if I'm going to approach a vehicle that has an animal lashed to it, I'm most likely going to bear the brunt of whatever consequences that are resultant to my decision(s), most especially if I choose to come within "striking" range of the animal. That being said, maybe a small measure of caution should be fed into the mix the next time you're chewing that particular decision over in your head? And last, but certainly not least, the whole "pepper spray" part of this story is 100% complete and absolute BS! There is just not a possibility that this actually happened. Whoever reported that pepper spray was involved needs to re-examine the facts of their side of the story.
