A boxer mix that was running loose through Winder's Casey's Crossing neighborhood attacked and injured three children who were getting off a bus on Tuesday morning, WXIA-TV reports.
The Barrow County Sheriff's Office told the TV station that two 10-year-olds and a 12-year-old suffered superficial injuries and one minor puncture wound on their arms and legs and were treated at the scene.
Wikihow offers this advice for handling a dog attack. Among the steps:
-- Be careful never to aggravate a strange animal.
-- Watch for signs of aggression in the animal, such as approaching at a run and keeping its head level.
-- Remain calm, to avoid showing weakness or appearing aggressive.
-- Be prepared to block any assault with a stick or by thrusting out a leg.
-- Back slowly away and leave when the dog loses interest.
