Owners had two dogs and took control of one saying that this one is a biter. However, the other dog ended up biting the runner 5 times in the leg.
I'm starting to get scared of running alone in woods. Off-leash dogs could appear at any moment and might snap. This one was even a dog lover and not afraid, which is usually the dog owners excuse if their dog bites someone 'he was scared, that's why he got bitten, the dog can sense fear!' Is there anything we as running community can do? Every day there is bad news about dogs and runners, it seems we can't assume everyone in our society is intelligent enough to handle such strong animals.
