This morning while doing pre-Shabbat errands, I saw a dog randomly attack and bite a 12 year old boy on his way to school.  The boy did nothing to provoke or antagonize the animal.  Then the owner of the dog came out of the supermarket, observed the commotion and tried to take off, escape before he could be held accountable for his pet's actions;  a Jerusalem police man who had also witnessed the event prevented the man from leaving, sticking right next to this dog until the police and the ambulance arrived.

I don't know what scares me more, the idea that Raphaela - an animal lover who never hesitates to pet any cat or dog - might get bitten one day in a similar situation; or the deplorable show of cowardice and immorality shown by the owner of that dog.
