Armed Citizen Stops Dog Attack

A Jackson, Mich., man used a firearm to protect himself from an aggressive dog last Tuesday morning.

According to police repots, two pit bulls wandered onto the man’s property and advanced toward a woman there. One of the dogs latched onto the woman’s clothing, but she was able to break free and escape.

When the man who lived at the property tried to run the dogs off, one of the dogs advanced aggressively toward him, prompting him to shoot the dog. According to mlive.com, police say the man was within his rights to protect himself, and the dog owner will face misdemeanor charges for the loose animals.
