Stray dogs walk alone and in packs, are relatively calm or obviously aggressive. In any case, a person senses the danger posed by the animal and figures out in advance how to defend himself in the event of an attack.
It is necessary
- - ultrasonic repeller;
- - stun gun;
- - starting pistol;
- - pepper spray;
- - bear fat.
If you know that stray dogs have chosen an area, try to bypass it. In particular, you should not jog there, ride a bike or do other activities related to active movements. Flashing hands and feet are always an incentive for a dog to pursue. A hungry and embittered dog can rush into the attack.
Write a statement to the housing maintenance organization about the threat to the safety of residents. They are obliged to transmit the signal "higher". You can apply directly to the city administration yourself.
If you are forced to often walk through the habitat of stray dogs: wastelands, the private sector, get special protective equipment. It can be a device that scares away animals using ultrasound. The price of the device fluctuates between 800 - 3000 rubles, but reviews about the effectiveness of this method of defense vary. Some people think that ultrasonic devices are practically useless. Other options for protective equipment include a starting pistol, stun gun, pepper spray.
If you have such a rare product as bear fat, lightly lubricate your shoes with it. Dogs will smell this smell and will not dare to attack.
When a pack of dogs approaches, pull yourself together, keep your composure. Do not run under any circumstances. If possible, stand with your back against a wall or tree. A dog that has not been specially trained will not attack in this case.
Give the dogs a direct, threatening look. Avoid averting your eyes. "Crush" the pack with a glance, mentally ordering her to move away. Bare your teeth to sharpen your teeth.
Shout or scream loudly.
If there is something edible, throw it aside away from you, and when the dogs rush to eat the tidbit, slowly "do your feet", moving first forward with your back and not quickly.
If you fail to drive off the dog, defend yourself with objects that are in your hands. Cover the body with a bag, briefcase or folder: if the dog decides to bite, place the protective equipment perpendicularly in front of its muzzle. An umbrella that can be used as a shell is very useful.
