Flyer I personally had a similar experience but with a four legged predator instead of two. A few years back we had a neighbor with a pitbull which is fine I don't have anything against the breed, mostly it's the owner not the dog. Anyway this thing chewed a hole in their fence and claimed the whole street, sidwalk and lampost as his and began to vicicously attack anything that was walking down the street. Well we put up with that until school got out and the thing was biting kids, so I called animal control and told them there was a dog out here attacking little kids could you come and get it. "Sure." They said "we'll send someone right away." Half an hour goes by, this time it bit a woman walking down the street, she had a walking stick so whe wacked it pretty good and it withdrew into it's yard a little. Called animal control again "we are aware of the situation and we are sending someone to you right away." I told them to please hurry because it just attacked a woman. "Does she need medical attention?" I told them no but there are lot of kids out here and they could get hurt. "We are sending someone as soon as possible." This time and hour went by I was literally standing on the street warning people about the dog. Next it almost got a kid on a bike it literally bit the tire the kid was screaming but the kid and the bike were fine. By this time I had my .45 with me I was prepared to end it but I decided to give animal control one more call. "We are aware of the situation sir we are trying to get someone out to you." I told them to forget it I have a gun I'll take of the matter myself. 15 minutes later animal control showed up to get the dog.
