Since we're 'going to the dogs'...
I guess one has to weigh the value of what you are trying to save or protect. To this woman, her flock of sheep was worth risking her life. Just think what she would be willing to risk for a baby.
There has been a lot of thoughts on the topic of whether to help/act or wait for trained personnel. Even some psychology on the topic.
My mindset remains the same. As my original post stated, I would not stand idly by and watch this baby get eaten. Knowing I had my CCW on me.
Too, I would hope that if I took the initiative to render help in some kind of way, others would join in as well. Two or three grown men would have a much better chance against these dogs if you had to go into the pit.
