Woman Fatally Shoots Pit Bull To Save Her Dog And Herself

posted on March 7, 2017

A Molino, Fla., woman was in her home last Friday morning when she heard her small puppy whining and whimpering in the backyard. As she checked on the pup, she found a pit bull had broken into the yard and was attacking the smaller dog. Then the pit bull set his sights on the homeowner, and began to rush her. 

Fortunately, the woman had grabbed her gun and she fired at the charging pit bull, fatally wounding the aggressive animal. Neighbor Rachel Drury, who also owns a small dog, told WKRG News 5, “I can see the passion, and they were just trying to save their dog, so I can empathize with that owner.”

The family was shaken after the attack, and it’s not clear how the unleashed dog gained access to the puppy. However, Escambia County Animal Control officers told reporters the owner of the pit bull has been cited several times before.
