Followuip WI: No Charges in Dog Shooting

Police were notified by the man who shot the dog at about 5:35 p.m. According to Lt. Dave Wohlgemuth of the Police Department, the shooter identified himself as a licensed concealed-carry holder and said he shot Reyna after she attacked his dog and after he tried several times to kick Reyna away.
Police later confirmed that the man had a permit, Wogelmuth said.


“The firearm use was on the resident’s own property in the protection of his own dog. Further review will take place for this incident; however, initial examination of the facts indicate that the person who stopped the attack of the pit bull acted within the provisions of the law — Wisconsin Statute 174.01 — Restraining Action Against Dogs (allows for the use of deadly force in the protection of one’s own domesticated animal),” Wohlgemuth wrote to media about the incident.
