    WSYX ABC6 On Your Side Top Story - Woman Loses Finger in NE Columbus Dog Attack

    "Woman Loses Finger in NE Columbus Dog Attack
    COLUMBUS -- A woman lost a finger when she was attacked by dogs during her morning walk. Dorothy Bass, 77, was walking with three friends along Lone Spruce Road in northeast Columbus when two Cane Corso Mastiffs approached the group. Police say one of the dogs lunged at Bass's hand after the woman tripped and fell to the ground. One of Bass's companions also fell, then pulled a gun and fired multiple shots at the dogs. He says it was an effort to save his friend, and himself.

    "I loaded the chamber and stood over where I wouldn't shoot her, and I aimed at both of them," Frederick Marshall said. "I shot two or three times." Marshall says neither dog was shot. He says he's often seen the animals chained to a tree, and they always appeared menacing. The Mastiffs are now in the possession of Columbus Animal Control. The dogs' owner refused to speak with ABC 6/FOX 28.

    Bass lost a section of her hand, including a pinky finger, in the attack."

    Sounds like someone needs more range time... Never the less, it's good to see a positive story in th news.

    Adrenaline pumping, worried about possibly hitting his friend, and I'm sure the dogs weren't just standing there with targets on. All things considered, I say the person did fine.

    I'm in this camp.
    Sure the old guy could get in some more practice, but we're probably talking about someone who may not have had an extensive background with handguns, so I say, well done.

    Friend of mine had two of those same types of dogs... they got loose one day and attacked an old lady. Imagine that. Stupid part was I told him probably 6 months before it happened they were going to get loose one day and kill somebody... lucky for him they didn't kill the person.

    I agree with you. I have heard that breed of dog can be dogs from Hell. I guess the lady should feel lucky for only losing a couple of fingers and not her life.

    Sounds like they're lucky the gun shots scared the dogs off,On the other hand he is the type of CCW/CHL/CWP holder that gets there permit and never practices again thinking that just carrying a gun is enough.#1 had to chamber a round in the gun #2 missed 2-3 shots at point blank range,sure his adrenaline was thru the roof,but I'm sure it won't be any less if he is getting robbed,and his misses may find an innocent victim,not to mention that depending on type of surface those rounds hit there is very possibly collateral damage somewhere

    The outcome was ok, but there are some lessons to learn about this.

    1. Why carry with round not chambered? You may as well carry a hammer instead. Chambering a round wastes precious seconds when confronted with danger. It could make the difference of life or death or getting your "gun hand" mauled by a dog and then it's over.

    2. Needing more range time or shooting practice is a must. Good that the dogs were frightened by the noise of the handgun being fired, but some dogs are not and would continue the attack.

    3. Need way more situational awareness. If they knew those dogs had been "chained to a tree" and appeared to be menacing, then why walk near them. If possible, avoid that area.

    Still though, a person did have a firearm and it was used to stop an attack and that is what we constantly preach about. Hopefully lessons learned, albeit the hard way.

    In this case, pepper spray may well have caused respiratory or cardiac failure in the victim, even if it worked on the dogs.

    Cattle prod or taser would be a bad idea, IMO, as the victim was in wet tissue contact with the dogs.

    Good points about OC. Age and physical limitations should be considered as there are many types of OC from Spray to Gels, patterns,strength etc. It is really effective on Animals, I carry it when walking, jogging or hiking as well for just that

    where did all them shots go; there was 2 or 3 stray bullets that went somewhere?

    sorry but pepper spray sounds a lot safer then this guy shooting. there are 2-3 shots that could have hit someone else; they had to go somewhere!
