Man Attacked by 2 Dogs...

On my local news this morning there was another story about dogs attacking someone...

But there's a twist.

The man was attempting to steal a vehicle that was parked outside of an apartment complex. When he hopped in he was delighted to find the keys in the ignition! However, he wasn't very happy when the car owner's two dogs jumped from the back seat and attacked him.

The dogs - a Jack Russell mix & a Boxador (Labrador Boxer mix) attacked the man for at least 4 minutes until the car owner returned outside. It turns out she had forgotten something inside and ran back in to get it before taking her pups to the local Dog Park.


**So the people commenting on this story on the Facebook page are upset that the lady didn't immediately call her dogs off. She said she called 911 first and didn't try to get her dogs because she was afraid the man might have attacked her. Do you think she should have called her dogs or would you have done what she did and just called 911?

Hmmm.  I think I would have called 911 first then called off my dogs.

Also people are calling for charges against the WOMAN because she left her dogs in the car long enough for someone to try to steal her car...

Seriously?

She said she was gone for 5 minutes at most because she had to run up the stairs to her apartment to grab "some papers"...

That was me. I'd call 911 and then try to get my dogs but if my dogs thought someone was dangerous and I was in danger I don't know if they would come to me.

I would have called 911 first and then waited ... and waited ... and then called off the dogs.

Yea.  I don't think my dog would come if she felt I or my kids were in danger.

I would have called 911 first and then called my dogs, however my dogs would not have let go until I was safe

I would have done what she did. I don't feel bad for the would-be thief at all.

You'd be surprised how many people think she should be in trouble for not stopping the attack...

 Injuries sustained during a crime in process...

Not her fault.

She called the police as she should have
