"An Animal Control Officer in Arizona said, “As the dogs approached, all forty kids stayed calm and became trees. The dogs sniffed them, but the children stood still. I know for a fact if someone started running they would have been bitten. When my supervisor and I started this program, we decided that if it saved one child from being bitten, it would be worth it. We did not expect to save a whole class at once.”
