Attack is a very harsh term BUT yesterday we were riding the Green trail at Mabie and on 2 occasions a little Jack Russell chased down my wife & kids and had a pop at her ankles.
On the first occasion i had stopped to wait for my wife so it had a pop at the kids when i wasnt there. It went flying past me at full speed and, even though it wasnt funny, it went round the berm in fantastic style chasing them down. I heard shouts and thankfully my pal had made the kids stop and the dog buggered off.
On the second occasion it chased down me and the wife and started jumping up at the wifes ankles trying to nip her. I am not scared of dogs at all and stopped the bike and started moving towards it telling it i was gonna rip it a new corn chute. It hightailed it away before i could get at it.
All the while its owners were at least 150yds back in the distance.
If i wasnt out with wife & kids and friends i would have made my feelings known to the owners. I think its a shared trail so i was wondering IF they had to have it on a lead or not
