Man Shoots Charging Pit Bull In Self-Defense

posted on January 5, 2017

Imagine that you’re walking to your car on your own property and encounter two pit bulls. One dog begins to growl, baring its teeth. Then it charges straight for you. 

It was a real-life scenario for a Taylor, Mich., man on the last day of 2016. Luckily, he was armed with a revolver. When the man realized he couldn’t make it to the house before being mauled, he used his firearm to stop the advancing animal. Afterward, the dazed homeowner called police and a neighbor—the dog’s owner—to report the incident. 

Police determined it was a defensive action and no charges were filed, and the owner took the dog to a local vet where it recovered. Records show Animal Control officers had previously warned the pit bull owners after the dogs had escaped the yard, and witnesses to the New Year’s Eve incident say both dogs had been terrorizing the neighborhood for nearly an hour.
