Now that's scary.


Yeah - I was told first day on the farm - you do NOT go out alone into the fields, and one person keeps dog watch

If you were staying within a few hundred feet of the house, you were fine, the pack never came close to the house

OBG, who doesn't do metric...


I've heard a gram is about the weight of a paper clip.

That's how I picture it in my mind.

Can anyone discribe this dog "Neck Snap Method"?

Many years ago a powerful friend of mine was attacked at night by a German Shepherd dog. The dog lunged at his chest and he grabbed it by the neck and rump, in his words he then "broke it's back over my knee". The next morning I helped treat the bite wounds to my friends left hand and saw the dead dog in the ditch, it's body was bent at a right angle.

At this time another friend of mine is on IV antibiotics to combat infection in his arm from a dog bite received during training. After the bite his arm swelled quickly and painfully to his armpit before he went to the hospital.

Here is my admittedly poor description from above:

Feed it your weak forarm, then put your strong forarm behind its head, and snap your weak forarm away from you at the same time you snap the stong one toward you. Supposed to break the dogs neck

Alright, I have the official answer to this matter.

I just saw the new Batman movie. He's twice taken down by Rottweilers. First time, one managed to both bite through the armored Batsuit and take a good chunk out his arm.

Second time, he's taken down by three Rottweilers. Batman manages to beat the tar out of one of them. The other two almost have him for dinner.

Anyone crazy enough to think they're going to successfully break a Rottweiler or Pitbull's neck, send me some of what you're smoking.

No doubt, some special forces guy somewhere has done it once upon a time, after years of training, and he probably got lucky at that. But my thinking is if Batman can't do it, you can't either.

"...Batman can't do it, you can't either..."

I think Batman's kinda goofy, but I have no doubt that I personally would be lucky to break a Yorkies neck...

God made man, Sam Colt made then equal.


That works for dogs, they may have big teeth, but my 10-22 (25 round mag, several of these mags) or my 870 will shift the odds back to me.

Plus all of us have something a dog doesn’t have. A brain that reasons things out, this is the most powerful weapon there is.

Friend,

Years ago I was almost killed by a 68 lb, attack trained Pit Bull (male). It had been a fighting dog and was a few years old. I was lucky in the end and only got dog slobber on me.

At the time I had little experience with vicious dogs. I had grown up out in the country and had seen packs of various wild un owned dogs. I had climbed trees and waited those out. I had killed one dog that kept coming toward me and kept trying to fight my dog(who was a collie and chow mix). I used a crossbow to kill it.

In 1991 I was involved in ground operations in Desert Storm. We shot dozens of wild dogs that came to our areas in packs searching for food. We were able to save one pup from a litter as the wild pack we had shot had recently eaten the rest of the puppies from the litter. It was savage business for me as I love dogs. I hated to do it. But I had to do it.

I have seen pit bulls shot and initially survive a few 9mm hits.

If any dog is agressive and comes at you, you better shoot it fast and often. A bite on and arm or leg can infect and end up taking your life or your limb.

IF a dog is trained or just wild, it can kill you. If its a pack of dogs. Shoot quick, give each some lead, and then shoot them again.

Its is the only solution if you cannot avoid the entire situation.

CP
