Smalahundur Posted May 31, 2015 Report Share Posted May 31, 2015 And got mauled for my troubles, ungrateful ******.... Yesterday we went to check out the fences at our new place, because we were planning to move the rams there. The fences there made of sheep net with a line of barbed wire on top. Max likes to jump fences. At the end of our walk Max decides to jump the fence, and miscalculates; He goes over but both his hind legs get grabbed by the barbed wire and he ends up hanging upside down screaming his head off. The wire got flipped over so he is hopelessly stuck. With visions in my head of ripped tendons and torn muscles I run to him, grab him by the torso (he is hanging on the opposite side of me), and lift him out. By now Max has completely lost his mind, quickly snaps at my fore arm,(leaving fang marks) immediately letting go, only to lock on to my biceps, and I mean locking on, really biting down. I decide to grit my teeth, bear it, and lift him out (all this happens very quickly). He lets go of me the moment his hind legs are loose, but to say I was not very happy with him is an understatement... My right biceps is black and blue, with scratched skin. I was really lucky to be wearing three layers of clothing, long sleeved cotton shirt, woolen sweater, and a soft shell jacket. Jay for the cold spring, had I worn just a t shirt that would not have been scratches but deep punctures.... Of course Max is completely unhurt; not limping, not even a scratch to be found on his legs... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
