That is not so, i explained the dog constantly threatened me by barking aggressively by my side [on a public highway] for around 200 meters.
I rode in fear of getting bitten at any time during the attack, and explained the dog made my ride awkward with wobbling and swerving on a 60mph national limit road with the danger of passing traffic.
What part of 'aggressive guard dog illegally loose on public highway threatening passerby cyclist' don't you understand?
I don't think it worth making all the fuss you have over such a minor incident which may or may not have been illegal. No harm was done so why turn it into such a big deal.
No big fuss here, just reported it as it happened.
It was illegal. [Fact]
Some harm was done because i suffered symptoms of shock after the guard dog attacked me.
I'm not making a big deal, i appropriately informed the police and left it to them to sort out.
The police agreed it was illegal, and thanked me for taking the time to write a statement.
Why are you so obtusely making big a fuss about it being trivial and not illegal?
It's up to a court to decide if an illegal act has been commited not the police.
I'm saying it's trivial because it is in my opinion. It's something that's happened to me on more than a few occasions over the past forty odd years of cycling in mainly rural areas. Can't say I've been overly bothered about it and see no reason to involve the police. YVMV
