How bizarre and in one case particularly brazen. Was there a full moon out that night?
As far as cursing a dog, no offense to the dog lovers here, but I've had occassion to curse a San Pedro dog at 4 in the morning too. Only kept me awake every night for 3 weeks.
Anyway, I guess a good hint for those with criminal intentions, would be don't sneak about at night wearing white and cursing dogs. Someone is bound to think you are a prowler.
