I unofficially approve of someone using a fully automatic heavy machine gun on this van if they spot the person throwing a bag.

/I also officially approve of this.

Not normally in favor of the death penalty, but it seems warranted for a person like this.

While the story was specific, it's possible the guy doing this is putting small amounts of meat in the bags. And dogs will chew through damn near anything to get to free food.

Stupid dogs barking at me for walking on the sidewalk.

People are out of control here with this. Almost every block there is some home with a crazy dog barking its head off when I'm walking by on the sidewalk.

It is always super annoying when its a corner home and the sidewalk is right next to the fence.

Is the proper response to just walk by ignoring the dog going ballistic 2 feet away or is there something acceptable I can do?

For some reason, the sounds of dogs barking reminds me of my grandparents' house. I like listening to them at night in bed. Like the train near my house or the sound of rain.

I wonder if one of these dogs lives right next to some who doesn't like to hear dogs when they are trying to fall asleep.

reported by a sign taped to a counter top.

but after calling a bunch of vets in the area they can only confirm 3 cases.

Felonie: GOOD. Now maybe some people can get some sleep.


This. As someone who was recently bitten by a dog while walking down the road minding my own business I'm not in the mood to be sympathetic to dog owners. Doing some research I learned that there are more than four million dog bites a year of which about half a million are so serious they require hospitalization. About 30 people, mostly kids, are killed each year by domesticated dogs.

I'm not fan of vigilante justice. I'm not even going to sue the owner of the dog that bit me because it just isn't worth the drama, since I didn't need to go to the hospital. But dog owners who are looking for sympathy are barking up the wrong tree. Dogs are biological weapons. They are used that way by many dog owners. I'm for banning guns and I'm for banning their biological equivalent--dogs.

The proper thing to do for Fark is to just ignore it and recognize that you're a douchebag for even having an issue with a dog barking at you. If a dog breaks free from its chain, jumps its fence, crawls under it, etc. in order to viciously maul you, the appropriate response is to simply lay there and allow it to go to town on your face until it gets tired. Then after applying salt and lemon juice to the remains of your face, go to the dog owner's door and apologize to them for feeding their dog the scraps of your face.

In real life, the appropriate response is to ignore it, or if you really want to get the point home -- stand in front of it barking at you, and stare it straight in the eyes.

Just stand there, glare at it, stare it through its eyes. Think evil thoughts. I know that sounds ridiculous -- but I've given dogs the death glare before that barked at me. Didn't say or do anything. I just stood there like a farking creep and stared it straight in the eyes. Eventually they stop barking and go away.

Then I continue walking. I'm sure there's some kind of animal instinct there about eye contact and dominance, or maybe I'm just farking creepy. In either case, it stopped dogs from going ballistic on me from behind a fence.

No, having a starting contest with any normal, sane dog is impossible: they'll look away as soon as they can, especially if you're their pack leader.  It is a dominance thing.

That said, if a dog is actually dangerous, locking eyes with them is an aggressive act and if the dog is angry/scared/crazy enough, it may attack you.

If it's going ballistic on you from behind a fence, it wants to attack you anyway. It just has a fence preventing it from doing so. Since any verbal or physical reaction will just rile them up -- I find locking eye contact with them is more effective.

Yes, it's an aggressive act, but it's passive. If the fence is preventing it from attacking you, then you just need to stand there for as long as you need to before it recognizes no amount of its barking and growling is going to intimidate you, that you aren't going to back down. At that point, that's when it realizes that it should not be aggressive to you. Either because you are not attacking it and are not a threat, or because you are a threat to it and it does not want to mess with you.

Cruelty to dogs is one area where my strong morality does not interfere with wishing death to someone.

I'd pull the trigger myself if I thought death by gunshot were good enough for someone who poisons people's pets.

There was a dog on my old paper route as a kid, a big fluffy white motherfarker. Would bark at me every day. After a few weeks I just decided it was lonely, being chained up outside most of the time, so I just stopped at the fence until he stopped barking, then slowly moved to the fence and started petting him. Turned out to be a really nice dog.

TL;DR Just because it barks doesn't mean it's being aggressive

LavenderWolf: Just because it barks doesn't mean it's being aggressive


No, it's being aggressive. It just needs to recognize it can stop being aggressive when it realizes you aren't a threat, or a threat it isn't willing to challenge and thus be submissive to.

That just means taking time to educate the dog of that fact. Most people don't since they have lives and places to go, so the dog will continue to be aggressive each time they walk by. It's also good at pissing off the dog owners since they can't legally tell you to go away if you're just standing there staring at their dog.

You aren't legally doing anything wrong. Making eye contact with a dog isn't illegal, even if it's an aggressive act by nature.
