THERE ARE TOO MANY DOG ATTACKS IN THE U.S.
December 22, 2020
If I told you there was one dog attack on a person in the U.S. this year it would be too many, especially if it was a fatal dog attack, but, there have been literally dozens of fatal dog attacks in the past year of 2020, far too many. This is supposed to be a civilized society but the public has to contend with these ongoing fatal dog attacks that seemingly appear out of nowhere at times and cost human lives.
I had written elsewhere on this site of dog attacks that I had personally experienced and other dog attacks and how to protect and defend against vicious dogs, but I had not seen the page at Wikipedia which lists fatal dog attacks in 2020 and through the years. By fatal, it means the dog(s) literally attacked and killed a person. There are far more fatal dog attacks happening lately than even I realized, so it is necessary to make a big deal out of it and put this page up.
List of fatal dog attacks in the United States
One of the main offending breeds of dogs is, of course, the pit bull dog.
Here are some links at other places on this site which are related to dog attacks.

NON-LETHAL OPTION TO REPEL DOGS AND ANIMALS - HERSTAL FNS-9 SPRING POWERED AIRSOFT PISTOL REVIEW
I had advocated possibly shooting a CO2 pistol at vicious animals that try to bite you. The BB pistol probably would not kill an average dog, but if you are looking for an even less harmful way to repel bad dogs you might try an airsoft pistol that shoots 6mm plastic or rubber balls.
If you opt for a cheaper model of airsoft gun it might be a spring powered pistol which has a magazine to feed the plastic BBs which you would have to cock a spring a short stroke to power it. This would propel a plastic or rubber pellet at up to about 300 feet per second, a pretty snappy velocity which would discourage a growling dog if hit in the nose. It would not kill the animal and would probably do a lot less damage than a BB. At most it might sting the animal and discourage it. Pit bulls, however, might be harder to discourage as they seem to go into a complete rage at times and kill people.
Just an average attacking mutt, for example, may respond to getting hit by an airsoft pellet by retreating. If the dog ignores a shot or two from the airsoft gun and is determined to attack it might be necessary to use a club, knife, or real firearm to stop the attacking animal. This spring powered gun would not be sufficient to stop a pack of attacking dogs. You'd have to have some kind of rapid fire capability for a number of dogs attacking. See my article on the TRASH PICK.
The Herstal FNS-9 comes in a protective blister pack with 50 starter BBs and instructions sealed between the cardboard covers. It boasts 300 feet per second velocity. It's nice that the 6mm BB is larger than the .177 caliber standard BB to deliver a noticeable thump. You hear a positive click when the magazine is inserted. Even though you must cock it between each shot the short stroke cocks very fast for repeat shots which the magazine loads automatically for you, so just cock and shoot, cock and shoot again, 12 times. You don't have to hand load each BB, just pour into slot in magazine and close the port, then shake to the side with the spring depressed and let the spring up and it's loaded in the spring magazine ready to fire.
This is a realistic replica of the famous FNS-9 so you might not want to remove that orange safety piece on the muzzle which shows it is not a real firearm or it could be mistaken for a real gun.
Good sights, the tri-dot white sights, has a thumb powered safety, beaded dots all around grip for sure grip, very light at .7 pound and very attractive. You always consider how heavy or light a pistol is for carrying in jacket, etc.. Has large beavertail for maximum control.
The plastic in the gun does not appear to be cheap and no fakey white markings came with my gun which was made in The Philippines. The price on my gun has gone up in the last few days from $14.99 to $17.99, so I expect the demand for this nice pistol will cause the price to increase even more in the future. You can opt for a silver colored slide, etc. for a buck or so more.
Even with these light pellets it will penetrate one side of a large yogurt container so with heavier pellets I expect it will go through a pop can. With these light starter pellets it severely dents the can and almost goes through.
All in all a little bit of protection to startle vicious dogs for less than twenty bucks. Not bad. If the dogs keep attacking I guess you'd better JUST SHOOT THE BASTARDS WITH A REAL GUN!
