JOG­GING is a great way to stay fit and healthy - most of the time.

Just ask the woman who was re­cently bit­ten by an­other woman while go­ing for her morn­ing ex­er­cise in Oak­land, California.

She re­ceived a nasty fore­arm bite af­ter an irate dog owner chased her down for pep­per spray­ing her dog ear­lier that day.

Lo­cal po­lice claim the at­tacker’s dog tried to bite the jog­ger on a trail in An­thony Chabot Re­gional Park in Cas­tro Val­ley, prompt­ing lib­eral us­age of a pep­per spray bot­tle to fend off the an­i­mal.

We have strong sus­pi­cions as to where the dog learned its ag­gres­sive be­hav­iour. WE HAVE come a long way in the area of kids’ health, for ev­i­dence just check out a gallery of im­ages put to­gether by Coun­try Liv­ing HERE, an as­sort­ment of var­i­ously dan­ger­ous parental prac­tices that ex­isted in the 1960s.

Head­ing up the list of poor parental choices was the wide­spread use of the top­i­cal an­ti­sep­tic Mer­curochrome which con­tained harm­ful mer­cury.

More his­tor­i­cal boo boos in­cluded smok­ing and drinking while preg­nant and drinking from unfiltered gar­den hoses.
