Florida Worker Mowing Lawn Shoots Charging Dog

posted on April 21, 2017

A maintenance worker, mowing the backyard of a home in Northwest Jacksonville, Fla., saw danger coming. A pit bull from a neighboring yard had jumped the fence, and was charging straight at him. 

WJXT-Channel 4 reports the worker, David Hardy, had never experienced trouble with dogs before, but was recently warned. “The owner just told me to start watching out for those dogs,” he said.

Fortunately, Hardy was carrying a gun. “When he charged at me, he was looking like he was going to attack, so I had to pull out my gun and shoot him. I didn't want to shoot.” Originally Hardy thought he had missed, as the dog jumped back over the fence, but the canine later died. The dog’s owner told Hardy he should have fought off the animal, but Hardy disagreed. “Now, that's stupid. I'm not going to try to fight off a pit bull when he's trying to attack me.”
