IA: Man uses Birdshot to Defend Against St. Bernard
The man told police he attempted to scare the dogs off, but a St. Bernard growled at him and lunged at his face.
Police say the man put his left arm in front of his face, as one of the dogs bit him.
He then pulled a gun from his pocket and shot at the lunging dog, which did not sustain any visible injuries.
The man told police the rounds from his revolver were "birdshot," or very small shotgun shells.
