Quote: "The area of the refuge where the attack happened is popular with people using canoes and kayaks to spot wildlife."

Note: That seems like a two-edged blade there: I bet that area of the refuge is popular with alligators hiding beneath water to spot humans to eat too...

Quote: "The dogs had never shown aggression toward anyone before, John Faucette told St. Petersburg police."

Note: This area is right on Florida's Gulf Coast, downwind of the dead zones in the Gulf of Mexico, which are surely pluming deadly neurotoxic hydrogen sulfide now. This is also not far from where the original face-eater incident occurred, where a man went from normal church-going guy to ravening cannibalistic maniac incapable of speech in about 30 minutes after walking over a causeway over the ocean. Dogs have neurologies just as humans do, and they spend more time sniffing along the ground, which is where a heavier-than-air gas like hydrogen sulfide will tend to lurk. Once a person's brain is damaged - or a dog's - then their behavior and personality may change drastically. In many cases, they become violent, sometimes extremely violent. This may very well be the cause of this aberrant behavior from dogs with no previous history of violence toward anyone...

These days attack by bees in various partes of Hazaribag have become an worrying factor as about a fortnight ago 14 people, returning from cemetery, were injured when they were performing the rituals."

Note: Events like this are why I watch bee attacks. A swarm of bees can be far more deadly than any tiger or bear or dog or shark...
