    Pit Bull shot while attacking lab

    Cedar Rapids Gazette

    The first reported case 'round these parts of a concealed carry permit holder using his weapon, training (or lack thereof?), stopping a potentially deadly attack.

    It could be worse!

    I've deleted six posts already from this thread. Its not about the dog breed, its about somebody who stopped a dog attacking another with their gun. Discuss that. Nobody cares about your opinion on pit bulls. The lame arguments back and forth are tiresome and just that... lame. Go to a pit bull forum if that is what you want to do, this is not the place.

    That is not legal in Michigan. Here the law considers a dog property and you can not shoot to defend property. Sounds like their laws are better then ours in this instance.

    Same in OH. You had better be able to articulate why you were in fear of life and limb (not the dog's) to justify your actions.

    Wow; I think it would be a real fear that in a dog attack (scary all by its self) once your dog was dispatched (trying to protect you) that you indeed would be next... I think it would be a real fear and justify defending yourself... Just a thought..

    On another note; as someone who has had large and agressive breeds of dog for years (with no problems) Dog ownership and responsibility is as impprtant as gun ownership. It should not be taken lightly.. You know if your dog is friendly or not and should control it as necessary.

    Why do people keep thinking to shoot being in the skull?!

    That rarely works, as is very often reported as with this case here.

    I just recently lost my property/dog by the hand of another (groomer) and it isn’t easy to cancel out the personal emotions of a living thing’ vs. a mailbox. Nevertheless, I doubt I would have any trouble articulating my ‘fear for life’ in a similar situation.

    "Property Schmoperty"! An attacking dog is a likely threat to anyone & everyone in the immediate vicinity simply by breaking off & re-directing it's attack elsewhere in an instant. The man walking his dog that was attacked also had his daughter with him. The shooter in this instance was not an owner of either dog, but rather a 3rd party that heard & responded to the attack, quite appropriately I might add. IMHO.

    If the scenario was such that it was the owner of the dog being attacked that was also the armed CCW'er and shooter, it would still be a justifiable shoot due to the emminent threat to his daughter and himself.
    Asked by a CNN reporter "What do you feel when you shoot a terrorist"?, the Marine sniper simply shrugged & replied "recoil".

    Now more than ever, we are at war on our home soil ... WAKE UP & arm our troops when they are on home soil!

    The article in the paper today (as opposed to the on line piece linked above) had a little more information: The attacking dog jumped out of a car window before the caretaker was able to leash the dog. The attacking dog circled around those walking the victimized dog and those walking the victimized dog did not know if they were going to be attacked or not. The attacking dog chose to attack the victimized dog.
    Several people tried to prize the two canines apart with no success. All of those people were at risk of great bodily injury (to address the "property attacking property" crowd).

    After the attacking dog was shot, someone with an ice pick(?) was able to get the attacking dog into an apartment, and then into a fenced back yard to await animal control, who put the shot (attacking) dog down by lethal injection.

    Please note.. no mention was made of any breed in my update on the article... and boy, that's hard to do...
    Rats!

    The story has a happy ending. The innocent dog is ok and the attack dog was killed.

    The shooter did good and animal control did the right thing. That vicious dog will never attack again.
