NV: Man Borrows Gun to Shoot Pit Bull Attacking his Dog
A pit bull was shot and killed Saturday when a man walking his dogs, Tom Cope, jumped into action to protect his beloved pets.
"If I didn't intervene, my dog would die," Cope said.
He says he was taking his two dogs, Sergeant and Cotton, for their morning walk when the pit bull approached Sergeant, a German shepherd, in what looked like an attack mode.
"I didn't have time to react right away," Cope said. "He lunged, got my dog, got him on the neck and he didn't let go."
