Minnesota Senior Citizen Uses Gun To Stop Dog Attack

posted on July 13, 2017

A 74-year-old Dalton, Minn., man on Friday shot a large dog that was charging him, putting an end to the attack.

According to a report in the Fergus Falls Daily Journal, the man was bicycling down the street when a large snarling dog broke its leash and rushed toward him. The man was afraid and believed the dog intended to hurt him, so he drew a handgun and shot the dog. The animal backed off, but charged a second time, when the man’s shouting caused it to retreat again.

A sheriff’s spokesman told the newspaper that the man who was attacked had a concealed-carry permit. The dog has not been located since the incident.
