    Bad: two home invaders steal food...

    ...and injure one of the family dogs. The other family dog, a rottweiler, chased the intruders out, the way they came in... Through the doggy door.

    Homeowner boarded up the doggy door, says he's afraid to go out into his back yard... The home invaders were the neighbor's pit bulls.

    Shoot, or don't shoot?

    You bet your ass I would. Why wouldn't you. I'd shoot a cat if attacked. Am I missing something. It's not abuse when they start it.

    Bad: two home invaders ... Shoot, or don't shoot?
    Inside my home and not immediately going face-down on the floor in utter compliance? Very likely.

    Two dogs merely going after the food, wigging out the Rott but not threatening anyone? Not likely at all.

    Gunfire would damage my new tile floors. This is where that bayonet would come in handy.

    They (any dog) get a pack mentality and go into frenzy when feeding. They did nothing wrong. the home owner need to pay for damages and reinforce the fence

    The dog did do something wrong. It injuries another animal. I love animals as much as the next guy. Cross me like and it's it. If didn't shoot it I make sure it was destroyed.

    It's the neighbors responsibility to feed and secure his dogs,they come on my property or even worse into my house and threaten me or my dog and I will make sure if they survive they are too traumatized to even think about defecating in my yard

    It's a tragedy when a dog pays for the stupidity/carelessness of its owner. But the dog still pays, and all fault belongs to the owner.

    Absolutely, no questions asked. As long as it was safe to do so (being home alone, or knowing if my wife was out of the way of possible ricochets off the slab). Id sent the sorry sob a bill for cleanup and repair too.

    If it was a lab, husky or even a German Shepherd, no. But....a pitbull? Without a doubt that little freak of nature would not leave my house alive. Breeding animals for aggressiveness is just plain stupid. It's posted at my driveway that all pitbulls who enter my yard will be shot without exception. Cost me a dollar to print and laminate.

    I think you're looking at pitbulls a lil too negatively. They're not all bred to be aggressive, they're good, loyal, dogs, but everybody that wants to be gangsta needs dem sum pits

    Meanwhile, neighbor Jason Colvin — the pit bulls' owner — insists his pets are misunderstood.

    "They're not vicious at all," he said, introducing his pit bull named Tank. "They're raised around 5-year-olds and above . . . These are people dogs. They’re friendly.

    "They’re going to go in your house. They’re not there to eat anybody."
    So long as the owner has this attitude the dogs will pay the price. Instead of taking responsibility he only says that its not his dogs fault. That they are misunderstood. Where does he accept his part of the responsibility?
