A woman has been attacked by a pack of dogs in Maningrida to the East of Darwin. It appears that she was trying to free a dog that was stuck in a fence when 3 other dogs attacked her.
Simon Goodall of Dog Guru (www.dogguru.co.nz) said that this sort of behaivour can occur when a pack forms and just like in humans the pack mentality takes place.
Simon Goodall says that it is quite lucky there were only bites as with 3 dogs on one person it could very easily have been fatal. His advice if this is to happen is just to drop to the ground and put yourself into the foetal position to save your face and body. Often the dogs will leave whereas if you fight back they will become more aggressive
