Jeez, you guys will think that swedes are absolutely nuts soon :(

Anyhoo, apparently a 60 yearold man and his AST (see pic, for once...) were out walking in a suburb to Stockholm yesterday. 2 boys, both 15 years old, were out riding their light motorbikes on the path for pedestrians in the same area.
The man then got terribly disturbed by them and told them to get off their bikes and lead them away. The boys did as told, but he still wasnt happy and now continued to scream and follow them.
The dog was in its turn getting worked up, barking and lunging on the leash. And then it charged forward and bit one of the boys in the leg, butt and lower back before the owner could get it under control again.
The boy was transported away by ambulance. Witnesses say that the dog was on the leash all the time, but was given a lot of room to act out on the leash, and ample time to do so aswell.
It is unclear wether it was sicked on the boys. The older man is under suspicion for illegal threats and causing bodily harm. The dog is still with its owner.

Wow. I don't think that the dog would have to necessarily be given any sort of attack command in a situation like that to react the way it did. The owner was freaking out and in turn any dog would be freaking out as well. I think the guy needs to take some anger management classes. Horrible.

The easiest way to get a dog agitated is to get agitated yourself....

And the dog was given ample room on the leash? Ummm...that's an owner issue....if the dog was lunging, he should've been given less room on the leash....

I agree that this guy needs to learn to control his anger...for the sake of his dog...

the dog looks almost as old as the man in dog years!

What a dumbass.

I agree, Oscar gets very upset if people raise their voices, especially ones he does not know(not aggressive, just agitated). I expect the boys raised theirs, I wouldn't blame them, after doing as they were told and STILL being berated and screamed at.
