Anyone know of an effective dog mace - strong enough and proven to repel pit bulls? My wife was walking our dog on a public sidewalk when two pit bulls ran from a residence toward her. She picked up our dog and kept turning as they jumped up trying to get our dog. My wife kicked one in the head and it left. She kept screaming for the owners to come out and get their dogs - 4 cars in the driveway and no one responded. She crossed the street and the dog followed continuing the jumping, etc. Finally, she heard a young voice call the dog in. Called the police and an animal control officer responded. She went to the offender's house prior to coming to our home and heard the two pits barking inside. She acknowledged being afraid since she was alone and there were two pits. We gave her a supporting deposition and since there were two dogs, each offense gets cited twice. My wife was understandably shaken and so was our dog. Very grateful there were no visible injuries and really looking forward to going to court.
