You were attacked? Or bark worse than their bite type of deal??From S. Calif. Hit twice in 3 months by loose Pitbulls.
Total surprise, no chance of out running them.
Would very much appreciate knowing what you riders do to protect yourselves from loose bad dogs.
I saw lots of Coyotes but their extremily skittish and will run at first glance of you. I saw plenty of Rattlesnakes too, these boys would come out onto a road to sun themselves. Not a good idea because they would get smashed by cars; but I would be coming down a mountain road doing 30 plus see a Rattler and just run right over them! They didn't like that and would rattle their tails, probably even tried striking but I would be going to fast for them to be successful...I kind of did for fun!You mention big cats, now that's some scary stuff right there. There are Bob cats around where I live, but I've never seen one. Now what I have seen many times on my route arwaite coyotes ... I just saw one today in fact, a young one, but they just take off as soon as they see you.
Wait.. a .45 Derringer? How the heck do you hold on to a gun that small with a .45 style recoil? Damn. ..
