Have you ever heard of attacking raccoons? very strange. But her dog scared them away and probably saved her life.

Default Damn Dog sets owner up

I think it is the least the dog could do after stirring up all the trouble. Good thing it wasn't bears.

I am glad things ended no worse than they did.

Shouldn't say anything about a leash which might have help avoid the situation. Out on the trail with no one to mind a little off leash time is great and I don't know anybody who can say they never do it.

I used to walk in an area where javelina would be feeding in the mesquite trees with their young certain times a year and after one bad experience made sure the dog was on the leash when we passed through there.
