More Rural Georgia Dog Bites...

Following on from this thread...

Yet another rural Georgia dog bite

There was a two-for-one northwest of Atlanta this weekend. A pit bull drew blood on one rider and tried his best on a second rider.

Police were called. Animal control responded. The dog is quarantined.

The homeowner claimed it was a stray which had been hanging around his house. If he sticks to the story then the dog is likely to be destroyed. If he claims ownership of the dog and tries to recover it from impound then he gave a false report to the police.

following on from the earlier thread about regional differences for dog attacks.

I have ridden extensively in CA, NV, MO, AR, WA and OR in my 35 years of cycling. MO and AR are by far the worst. Then NV. Fewest on the west coast. I've never been bitten or taken down.

Hanging around because he was feeding it, maybe?........

Stray pit bulls don't wander around rural Georgia.

We had the same thing around here. Some good ole boy with dogs around who would chase cyclists. "Not my dogs. Just strays."
I loathe people like that.

Dog took a chomp out of my leg while on the bike the owner wouldn’t take responsibility. Called animal control while in ER . Had to go to ER by law, report incident by law, dogs went to dog jail for 10 days. Owner gets all angry sets dogs loose on me again trying to prove he is intelligent. Animal control writes a citation the old man aka owner of land has had enough. Bad son and dogs are evicted. Ands kids are around walking and riding bikes!

Dealt with that for years riding in rural Southern Illinois which is like the South.
Same kind of folk that we're ready to kick my tail for fighting off two of their poor strays with a mini tire pump screaming Don't you hurt my dogs! When police got there there they suddenly became well fed strays.
They just think you shouldn't be riding on the road where their dog has the right to roam free.

Also get mad if somebody hits their dogs in in car when the dog ran out in front of them. It's just love their dogs more than common sense to protect them.

In the late eighties me and the wife went on a community bike ride. I had our daughter in a two wheeled cart hooked up to my bicycle. As we were going down hill in a rural area. A dog ran into the road and my wife was pushed against the cart and fell across the top of it. I had the speed reduced when she rolled of onto the asphalt. She wasn't bitten and only had some light scrapes and bruising. The house were the dog ran from was abandoned as was the dog. The dog had dozens of cigarette burns on it and broken facial bones.
