"All hell broke loose," he said.

Lewis said the three dogs came loping up and began savagely attacking the German shepherd in a pack.

Lewis said he fought to protect his dog and at one point it appeared he may have scared off the pit bulls. The owner of the pit bulls, a Seattle man, also tried to pull the dogs off the German shepherd.

But the three suddenly came back - and this time they attacked both the German shepherd and the owner.

Lewis, a legal gun owner who has a concealed weapon permit, pulled out his handgun and opened fire at that point, shooting one of the pit bulls and scaring away the two others.

This was about 200yrds from where I live. My neighbor walks her dogs over there, saw it happen from a distance.
Lots of jackassery to go around from what she said. Both parties had their dog(s) running loose at a park where people play tennis, baseball, etc. It's not an off leash area.
I hope the shooter knew what he was doing.

Your gut is quite correct. And it's not a good idea to have pit bulls anywhere.

Like many pit bull owners I've seen, this idiot enjoys the fear he creates by having his dangerous dogs roaming free & scaring people.

Probably more accurate. When I read it I was wondering what all 4 of the dogs were doing off leashes. Of course the shooter was playing frisbee with his dog, kinda hard to do with a leash I imagine. Do they make leases designed to allow running after and catching a frisbee?

The pleasure they get from scaring people with their dog is well worth the risk of losing their dog. They're not really dog lovers anyway & they'll just get another pit bull.

It's not unlike the rush an arsonist gets when he watches the chaos resulting from a fire he set.

But I usually keep my DNAs locked up because the last time I let them out, they attacked the first child they saw.

Good shoot.

You are supposed to keep your animals under control. The shooter should have had shot all three of them. They attack once, they will attack someone else again.

I have found pit bulls to be excellent food for the Eagles that roost near my gravel pit. They are very pleasant dogs after a .357 round to the head, and don't put up much of a struggle against the Eagles. My 15 year old shepherd was mauled by a loose pit bull in my driveway. But only once. Huge vet bill. Pit bull was wearing a spiked collar. HHHMMMM????
I have noticed some commonality in pit owners. Insert your own observations (here)

Pit bull is a blanket term for media outlets the same way they use the word AK47 for any rifle, and Glock for any pistol.
Good on him for shooting the dogs, and they shouldn't have been off leash, especially considering they seemed to be vicious but I wonder how many of these attacks are done by APBTs, Staffies, whatever and what how many are done by unidentifiable mutts that people go, "Eh it's a pitbull".

Apples and oranges.

Guns are inanimate objects that require someone to operate their mechanics.

Dogs are animals with a mind and instincts of their own and capable of acting on their own regardless of their owners' control or lack thereof.

Pit Bulls are not aggressive dogs. Just read the article in the OP for anecdotal evidence.

Now excuse me for a moment while I go put a chain on my Glock and drive a spike into the ground to restrain it from shooting.

Bingo.

However logic like this does not compute with people that make this flawed argument time and time again.

The problem I find with this breed is that most people that own them probably wouldn't be fit to train a toy poodle but they just "need" to get a pit so they can feel tough.

Dogs, especially aggressive breeds, require constant discipline, a good diet and lots of excercise to keep them in line.

My dogs know who's boss and respect me completely but I think it is irresponsible to allow them out unleashed. Blame the owner.

I didn't have to teach my bird dog to point, or my cattle dog to heel our stock. What is it that pits were bred for?

It's always the owners fault when their pets misbehave, but nature will usually take its course given a chance. I really wouldn't take a pet alligator to the municipal swimming pool, and I wouldn't let a pit run loose around strange people or animals.

I personally feel that any dog is capable of being good or bad, its all in how its raised,

However in my apartment complex, the 3 super aggresive dogs are 2 pitbulls that live together, these cant play with any other dogs what so ever, they charge and growl on their leashes, have to have spiked choke collars and chains as leashes,

The other aggresive dog is some abused / neglected shepherd dog that never gets socialized,

The dog that has actually bit someone is a pit mix, also very aggresive towards other dogs,

A dog that my shepherd mix has gotten into little skiffs with is a pit mix, okay behavior, but not great, very dominant though and the owners dont really care..

If you have no experience, how does your gut tell you that?

Pit bulls are just dogs, unfortunately they are strong tough dogs with a reputation, which means they are often owned by dumbasses who try to make them into anything from fighting dogs to homemade attack dogs, "because dey pitbulls, dawg."

Pitbulls are like minivans, they are good, practical and would be great to own, but they have a reputation because they attract a really bad class of owner.

The dog in my avatar picture is a full blooded pitbull and is one of the sweetest animals on this planet. I am a dog lover, and esp. Love pitbulls. However, I would shoot any dog dead where it stood if it attacked me, my loved ones, or my dog.

This story demonstrates very poor pet ownership responsibility. Pits are a breed that need to have a very strong pack leader and need to be exercised daily. I do both of those things for Ruger. I also believe NO dog should ever be let off leash in a public area, period. I do honestly think pitbulls get a very bad rep, but the ones in this story absolutely need to be put down.

Well said, the owner demonstrated poor judgement and should never had the three dogs in a public park unleashed. Even if the dogs had been on leash it may have been difficult to control three of that size. Many communities it is against the law to have a dog off leash in public.

100% agree. Their owner is a dumbass. I love dogs, pits as well. I think pits can be very good dogs. All dogs require that their owners not be complete idiots. Especially Pit Bulls. A lot of times, bad dogs highlight the defects (or in this case complete reject) of it's owner. Pit Bulls are probably more so the case. Having three large dogs (a pack) unleashed in a public area is a bad idea.

Some people use their pets to lash out at the world for life's difficulties. Having employment which creates the light bar to flash or deliver civil papers to people, you meet many dog owners. The vast majority of people and their animals are a joy to meet and I try to leave them both feeling comfortable about the unexpected visit. However, a few people want a large agressivess dog in their presence which also forces me to feel empathy for the animal having to live in the mud hole of life with only death to release them from their misery. Most dogs want desperately to give friendship to you. Have been almost licked and slobbered to death at times-that's fine. Resent people who will not train or care for their pets. The old saying is "Once an idiot, always and idiot." A few people prove it every day. Sitting here typing with one hand while the other is playing tug a war with the monster laying on my feet wanting to play with his toy. Love and care for the little ones and chances are they will assume most people also like kindness.

Retractable leashes work well for dog walks and control other peoples comfort when approaching your pet-use them.

I'm a big believer that there are no bad dogs, only bad owners.

That said, dogs are bred for a wide variety of characteristics, and popular breeds tend to be 'brittle'... as they get overbred. Cocker spaniels are a great example - a wonderful sporting dog, wildly overbred, and what was once a dog with a generally excellent temperament is now very often snappish, high-strung, and prone to a variety of illnesses.

IMHO, pit bull terriers are not inherently a bad breed. However, they are bred for strength, aggressiveness, and size. They are a popular breed, and often overbred or poorly bred. They are popular with owners who don't train them well, or train them to be aggressive. I think anyone who approaches any large, powerful, unknown dog is crazy, but I also think there's a large difference between doing so with a pit bull and, say, a Bernese.

I'm very cautious with Pits and other large, powerful dogs in person, and at the dog park. More than one off leash that's anything but obviously very well-trained and well-behaved is probably a sign that it's time for me and my (very large, but ludicrously passive) dog to be somewhere else.

Yeah, it's who I thought it was.
I doubt he'll be in any trouble.

I live very close to where this happened as well and have talked to the shooter at a local gun shop before...
(He seems like someone who knows his way around firearm logistics)

The park where this happened is not an off leash park, but it is common for people to play fetch with their dog's off leash there.
It's assumed that people are in control of the dogs when off leash.
Having said that... The Pit Bull owner was just a typical idiot with dogs that shouldn't be off leash at a park like that at all.
No way... No how.
There's no reason in the world that he should have let his dogs out his vehicle at this park without leashes.
And yes, any locals here would say the "shooter" playing fetch with his dog was fine... Judegment call, but most wouldn't bat an eye...
3 pit bulls running off leash there?
That would have people asking the owner why he isn't at the big off leash park close by.
The pit bull owner was asking for trouble.
Just a typical young fool with pit bulls right out of "central casting"...
The reason so many good dog owners get a bad rap.
Scary to think of bullets flying around at a place like that...
Hope the shooter was fully aware of what was behind the dog at the time.
Lot's of traffic and people there.

I live very close to where this happened as well and have talked to the shooter at a local gun shop before...
(He seems like someone who knows his way around firearm logistics)

The park where this happened is not an off leash park, but it is common for people to play fetch with their dog's off leash there.
It's assumed that people are in control of the dogs when off leash.
Having said that... The Pit Bull owner was just a typical idiot with dogs that shouldn't be off leash at a park like that at all.
No way... No how.
There's no reason in the world that he should have let his dogs out his vehicle at this park without leashes.

I agree totally.
I used to frequent the gym he lifts at, he's a strong and knowledgable guy...both firearms and empty hand.
I defend pits pretty frequently, can't defend the owner though.
Owning any large dog is a chore, owning three (likely unfixed) and letting them roam free at Juanita bay is plain asnine.

Pit or poodle. If a DOG attacks you shoot it. End of story.

Good for the man who shot. Now, he needs to sue the negligent owner of the pit bulls. They need to be killed. And the owner needs to be required to pay a judgment to the man who was attacked.

I wish he also shot the other two pits. These dogs have DNAs that will kill their victims. i dont know why people still rearing these beasts.
You are ignorant

For those who support 'banning' pit bulls, what exactly would that entail?

Rounding up all pit bulls and exterminating them? Door-to-door searches looking for pit bulls? How would a determination be made whether a dog was actually a pit bull or not? Would "it looks like a pit bull" be sufficient? Would pit bull owners be offered any compensation for the loss of their property?

Would those in favor of exterminating pit bulls also support exterminating all species of dangerous animals such as bears, alligators, sharks, etc.?

Saying "we oughta ban 'em" is one thing, but I suspect that the logistics involved in implementing a ban would be somewhat problematic.

These threads always end up entertaining to say the least. Anyone know what kind of handgun he was carrying?
