CA:Neighbor Shoots Pitbull Attacking Children

 One has to assume that the shooter used lead ammunition.   There does not appear to be any direct exemption for self defense in the lead ammunition ban for the taking of animals, but there is an out, because the dog can arguably be classified as a domestic animal instead of wildlife.

A pit bull attacked at least two children on a neighborhood street, wounding one, before someone fatally shot the dog Sunday afternoon, police said.

The dog got loose in the 2400 block of North Genevieve Street (map) and began attacking people about 2:40 p.m., a San Bernardino police lieutenant told NBC4.

The pit bull bit a child's thigh. Someone arrived with a gun and fatally shot the dog, the lieutenant said.
