Handling an angry dog truly is a real world worst-case scenario you could easily face someday.

After the recent death of a little girl who was mauled by a pit bull terrier, this interesting BBC News article posted a number of tips to help people protect themselves from an angry dog or minimize the damage should they be attacked.

Among them:

  • Avoid direct eye contact, as dogs interpret it as confrontational.
  • Make no sudden movements.
  • Step away slowly and don't run.
  • Keep your hands in your pockets.
  • Don't separate dogs that are fighting.
