Fl: Dog owner shoots Pit Bull to save his pet
Nearly all states have laws allowing people to shoot dogs that are attacking their property/livestock.
Foxie’s owner, Tyrone Dyer, said he has no choice but to open fire on the pit bull when it attacked his dog.
“I’m not happy about it. I’m really not,” Dyer said. “It’s just a loss for everybody.”
Henrico Animal Control told Dyer the shooting was “justified” and that he was within his rights since there are laws that allow owners to protect their pets during an attack. But Dyer said he only started shooting after the pit bull’s owner gave permission.
