    You won't get that from me my friend. Dogs make wonderful pets and companions. But they are animals and have powerful jaw muscles and sharp teeth. Remember, dogs were a wild species at one time and as such had to be able to defend themselves with those jaw muscles and teeth and be able to kill to eat.

    Dogs acting such as the one you describe are dangerous and should be considered a deadly weapon. Lethal force would clearly be justified. You did fine.

    In the end, dogs only do what their owners ALLOW them to do, or worse yet, TEACH them to do. To me, allowing a pet to run at large constitutes cruelty to animals. It's hypocritical to allow a dog to run and then profess to "love" it after it has been run over or shot for attacking other pets or humans. For some people, it's convenient to have a creature around that will love them even though they mistreat it and forget to feed or water it. It's easier than dealing with a human, who won't put up with maltreatment for very long.
