Abstract:

Jean-Baptiste watched the powerful dog with unsteady gait approach and then attack a group of six of his friends. He picked up his whip and rushed to meet the animal, only to be savagely bitten on his left hand. In fierce hand-to-hand combat, Jean-Baptiste finally managed to throw the animal to the ground, pinning him to the ground under his knee. With his right hand he forced the dog’s jaws apart, sustaining new bites, then used his whip to tie the muzzle of his enemy and finally beat the beast to death with one of his wooden shoes.
