So I'm walking through a residential neighborhood and I see two dogs on a lawn across the street. They're large dogs--pitbull mixes, I think. Anyway, at first I'm not that worried because they're across the street, but then, to my horror, they cross the street and start walking in my direction.
I totally freak out. I turn around and start walking away, but the dogs are following me. Briskly. My heart is pounding and all I can think about is that these dogs could easily kill me, and there are NO human beings around to help me.
I thought about running, but I remember the last time I posted about dogs here, someone commented that a dog could easily outrun me, so I decided to just play it cool. Eventually, I got to the end of the block, and the dogs stopped following me.
At that point, I called the police.
I later found out from our Facebook community that the dogs belonged to a family that lived quite a few blocks away. That they "sometimes get out" but are really, really friendly. Fine, maybe they wanted to play with me and not maul me. But still... I didn't know that! And they crossed several major streets, putting their own lives in danger, as well as a car that might swerve to avoid them.
Not sure what to do at this point....
