The Christian Cooper story is not about dogs, it’s about a crappy owner.
I get the impression, in your last post, that you’re afraid of dogs. Is that the case? There’s no shame in it. That said, MOST, dogs (never all) don’t have any plan at all to attack you. My pitbull (that’s right), who’s cute and friendly and loves children as she rolls on her back for them to give her a scratch, has no plans to attack anything except the food in her bowl or my beer can.
Finally, people do understand. They know the rules. They openly flout them for whatever reason betting that there will be no consequence and, guess what there usually isn’t.
You’re going to do yourself harm if you keep going this way.
