... the mother grabbed her dog
(unsuccessfully, I might add, as the dog got into the team
and Tehya has a puncture wound on her leg from him)

No one besides Tehya was injured.
The child was scared but physically unharmed.

Sounds to me like BOTH the humans had a "dog running loose" ...
But YOUR'S wanted to *play* ...
HER'S jumped into your CONFINED team and picked a fight - injuring YOUR CONFINED dog.

Two wrongs may not make it right; but YOU should not be the one to shoulder
any more blame, nor consequences to your dog (Mac) - HE wasn't the aggressor!

Sure hope the Animal Control Folks see this the same way I do!
Stick to the Facts in your statement - and don't "offer" to accept punishment -
make THEM think of that.

Maybe we better call God again ...
