But what if the rider didn't genuinely like dogs? I have felt like that sometimes and have swung my boot up the hole of more than one annoying pooch.
When walking in Spain or France I carry a big stick and have whacked one recently for harrassing me. You could hear the thud and twack from quite a distance. I got another two handed hit in right on top of its head just to protect myself. I wouldnt hit a dog for nothing, but if I do, I do it right.
Be fair, if a dog aggresses me on the bike, I'd run it over, no worries. Wouldn't you?
There's something which wasn't mentioned in the article. Dogs dump crap all over the place and it's terrible. This can give kids toxicara canis, which makes worms inside you that exit from your eye. Horrible. So to be honest, if this stops even one dog poisoning people then you have to shrug and say, "too bad, Rover".
Shame you didnt get the number - you could really have done a job on that bloke. I wouldn't put any hope in 'faith'.
