the following types of frenzied attacks are unique to gripping and rabid dogs:
mass maulings and mass murder - attacks on multiple victims
attacks on cars and planes
jumping out of vehicles to attack
jumping INTO strange vehicles to attack
jumping from second story buildings
and of course, home invasions
Furious Form Stage: Also known as the "mad dog stage". At this stage the rabid animal is not paralyzed but shows signs of very aggressive behavior. Any noise or attraction makes the animal vicious, showing it's teeth and exhibiting fearlessness. In this stage they can attack other animals and human beings. This photograph shows a canine suspected of being rabid that had been exhibiting signs of restlessness, and overall uncharacteristic aggressive behavior, which are two symptoms of rabies. Other symptoms of rabies in pets may include impaired walking, eating and drinking. Courtsey CDC – National Center for Infectious Diseases - Rabies
