brickeyee, define "attack."
Some people think a dog approaching, wagging tail and head up, is preparing to attack.
Some people think black teenagers are threatening, because they are black teenagers.
Personally, I think you should be able to articulate exactly what behavior you found threatening, be it by a dog or a human. Some forum members here seem to have very low thresholds. (I don't mean you, brickeyee, as I assume you can elaborate on what you mean by "attack.")
