ID: Man Shoots Attacking Dog, Bullet Kills Dog, Wounds Owner
Both owners tried to separate the dogs and when the pit bull attempted to re-engage the other dog, the owner drew his weapon and fired one shot striking the pit bull in the chest. The bullet also struck the pit bull’s owner in the abdomen as she tried to separate the dogs again.
The owner of the pit bull was transported to a St. Alphonsus in Boise and underwent surgery Sunday on her bladder.
The Meridian Police Department is continuing their investigation to decide if any charges will be filed against either party.
