Good Guy With Gun Stops Dog Attack

A Massachusetts man used his legally owned firearm to stop a dog attack on his son and dog.

Sunday evening, the man and his son were walking their miniature poodle in downtown Haverhill, Mass., when two pit bulls attacked the poodle. The dogs also bit the son during the attack.

According to local police, the owner of the pit bulls came to the scene, but was unable to control the dogs. That’s when the owner of the poodles shot one of the pit bulls, putting an end to the attack. Local media reported that the poodle’s owner was properly licensed for the gun and no charges were filed.
