  1. Whilst out running on the weekend I was attacked by a dog in a forest area. It was not on a lead and the owner did little to stop it jumping at me and trying to bite me until I whacked it with a stick. I also booted it at one point.    The owner then began threatening me with the Police and became overly aggressive.   Where do I stand legally with this, surely If an uncontrolled dog attacks me I have a right to self defense ? If I' d seriously injured it (which was not the case)  or even killed it where would I stand ?   I was not injured bar a few scratches and it messed up my run.
