Tough one. Sure sounds like the neighbor over-reacted to the situation, and I get tired of the over-generalizations about large breeds.

On the other hand, owning a large breed is a serious responsibility, and so you better make damn sure that

1. your dogs can't roam the neighborhood, or
2. if there's a risk of them every getting loose, your neighbors are familiar and friendly with them, or
3. you are prepared to deal with dead dogs.

People like this don't help with the pit's image. This is a local guy who comes to all the meets just like this. Definitely douchebag territory.

^ Wannabe tough guy.....real time ****** and a half

I see NO REASON to shoot up anything with an AK47 unless its targets at the shooting range or an enemy during war.

I'm not a fan of pit bulls just because they aren't my thing. People make them out to be worse than they are though.

Sadly, I kinda get the situation of the gun owner.

My neighbour 2 doors down has this mammoth dog that breaks out and scares the **** out of people. Once he ran over and tried to attack my father in his truck because there was a husky in the back. Of course my father freaks out at me telling me to control my idiot neighbours, truck, scratched from the dogs nails.

I cant tell you how many times I have asked for the guy to put his dog on a chain or something as it scares people, especially those walking dogs which are muzzled when he lets his run lose.

Of course, my neighbor being the complete dickwad douchebag that he is laughs it off until i explained it simpler for him. Being that I am awesome and he knows it, I explained to him the next time the dog creeps around my yard or near my kid when hes out side I would kill it (I would likely end up in jail over it..but i work on the net and dont leave Canada, so who cares). Of course, he got in my face and was all badass, but I am more badass and he went home.

The following day the dog bit the paperboy (unleashed). Since that week, I have not seen that dog unleashed. Its not the dogs fault the neighbor is a complete ****. Its not the dogs fault (or even these dogs killed faults) that they got out, they are animals, they will do what they want. Its the owners fault, its their responsibility.

Dogs are intimidating. Some people dont like jacks cause they yap and certainly people are scared as **** of Pit Bulls. Hell, they are banned here in Ontario because the media made them out to be people killas.

Quote:
We later discovered our electric fence running the perimeter of the yard had shorted out and the dogs pushed through 2 wooden planks in the privacy fence of our backyard and got out. Mr. Murphy says he was sleeping when his wife and kids came in the house saying dogs came after them.
Honestly, its a horrible thing to have happen and as a pet owner myself it would be heartbreaking. BUT, lets put this in perspective. They are dogs. Humans are superior and certainly children and people come first.
From what I read, this guy may have done the community a service and saved someones kid from getting their face torn off.

Now I will also add. I do like most animals more than most people I have met. And before my kid was born I would have said f' the guy, he over reacted. Now with a kid, sure, I am protective. Downside of being protective in Canada? You dont get to shoot ****. You gotta be a man and do it with y0 bare hands.

PS. my neighbors are such ******s.

They are banned here in Ontario. I didnt vote for the ban or not. The owners thing they are all tupac raising the dogs to be dangerous. When you or someone is getting ripped apart by one, you will be wanting to shoot them in the face (the dog)

Tell me you care more about a dog when it does this to your kid.



Easy enough, just Google pitbull bite and see the countless ones out there. Sure, other dogs bite too but thats not the issue. The issue is putting down 3 stray potentially dangerous dogs.

I better sell my Miata and get a lifted truck so my ***** can grow.

BTW, I have a 4 year old son.

I saw that article last week signed it and posted it on my FB. Nobody was hurt, there was no evidence on the kids that the dog was even near them. He shot them in cold blood and should be punished.

Its funny, that dog looks pretty tiny compared to the douchebags down the street.

My family are pet friendly. 3 cats, 3 dogs and 2 frogs. LOL Here is our latest addition.

The difference between myself and my neighbor, is we handle our dogs responsibly. If the dog bites an intruder, good dog! Biting someone on the street because its off the leach, no go and my fail.

Dogs get out, accidents happen. But dogs are lower down on the food chain

Oh, and if your dog runs around unleashed in a neighborhood full of people, then yes, qualification of douchebag met.

At the cottage.

You are correct, if they get out and hurt someone then something should be done. But those dogs did nothing. My dog is 65 lbs, I purposely limit his exercise.

You have my sympathy on this one. If it happened to my dogs I'd be constantly making his life harder. He can shoot and kill three dogs because they were out wondering the neighborhood? Which as most dog owners know is more than usual, they constantly find ways out. Who the hell does he think he is. It's one thing if the dogs were attacking and another if they were just out and about. What you need to do is find a bum downtown somewhere and give him a 100 bucks and a gun and show him a picture of this guys kids. When the deed is done have the bum ask how does it feel. No one should have a right to take another life.

Demonizing the AK isn't cool either. It's controllable, easier to hit with than a pistol, and fires a round powerful enough to humanely put down deer.

If there's a crime to be punished, it's the decision to shoot. Demonstrate that, ignore the emotional gun-fear arguments.

There are 2 sides to this story and I can understand both.
I have a beautiful german shepherd that I absolutley love to death, but my biggest peeve is when dogs are not disciplined or trained or looked after.


1 side - as Brain said, if a dog is attacking you how the hell will you have time to run inside, grab a gun, and come back out? Pretty fucked up what the guy did. If the gun was ON him and he was running towards the house when he got attacked I'd understand. if he got bit, or his kids got bit, I'd say absolutely: shoot the *******. But it doesn't look that any of that happened.

2nd side - why the hell were the dogs out? if your dogs get out, even once, you need to immediately figure out why/how and MAKE SURE it never happens again.
if it does and they get shot, ITS YOUR OWN DAMN FAULT. Deal with it.

Tell me, would you:
1) take the risk and see if the dog mauls your child or completely disfigures him for the rest of his life
2) shoot dog and not gamble with your childs life.


I'm not saying what the guy did is right, but loose dogs running around the street scaring people are the owners fault and people need to realize that if their dog gets shot its because they didn't prevent the dog from getting out.

I was going to say if they arent on your property, then they are free game. But, what I really wanted to say now is if they arent under your care and control they are free game. If you can't control your animal you shouldnt have one. Again, not the dogs fault, its the owners but accidents do happen.

Dogs get out, they wander. I have yet to shoot my neighbors dog or kill it by hand, but I would if i felt threatened. If my wife came in the house saying that the big retarded dog down the street came at her or my kid then yes, there would be problems. I am not saying I would even kill the dog, but I would certainly want to beat the **** out of the owner.

They are ONLY animals. Thats it.

Now, I don't know the rules of protecting yourself or your property in that state or any states really, or the rules of protecting your neighbor. But, lets be real here, if anyone was in danger you would do something to protect yourself, albeit call 911 or atleast try and fight back as the dog is deskinning your skull.

As I already said, I am not saying the shooter over reacted or didnt. There is one side of the story, hers (posted) in which there are claims both in defense of the dogs and in defense of the shooter. A couple different sides to the story but one thing is for certain, no one was there when the dogs apparently approached the children or whomever in which lead to the father getting his rifle. If he felt intimated by rogue dogs, then good for him.

Pitbulls roaming the streets in a pack shouldn't be a wait and see situation. Perhaps he should have called Animal Control or perhaps what he did was best.

Were the dogs being aggressive, barking, growling. If that's the case then obviously something needs to be done. The guy only lived two doors down, it would be really hard to convince me that he didn't know who the dogs belonged to. If my neighbor that lived two doors down had a pack of dogs, I'd know it and I'd make it my business to know if they are aggressive dogs.

This is what you dogs if you see dogs, ANY DOGS wandering around. Now if they are being aggressive, then by all means do whatever else you need to do.
