Man opens fire on 3 pit bulls at public park

"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.

Good! nothing else needs to be said

Schrag4 05-22-2011 10:34

I'm ignorant about dogs, so someone please educate me. Is it a good idea to have 3 unleashed pit bulls? My gut tells me "no" but I have no experience with pit bulls.

Good shoot

ExxoticOne 05-22-2011 10:37

I like Pit Bulls...all dogs for that matter. Regardless of the breed (except a little one I can drop kick) it's gonna get dispatched if it attacks one of my dogs or loved ones.

Nothing wrong here. I'm wondering how three pit bulls had te opportunity to return to the scene.

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.

Very well stated, I completely agree.

more gun control could have prevented this and a muzzle or two

hpracing007 05-22-2011 10:42

In before people start posting the same 3 or 4 pictures and videos of pitbulls playing with kids.

Dog lover here too, but it wouldn't matter to me if it were poodles, chihuahuas, etc...

Dogs are more dangerous in numbers for sure. He should look into a tactical collar for his lil buddy. :whistling:

pknimrod 05-22-2011 10:52

What is a tactical collar?
peter.

tongix 05-22-2011 10:57

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.

Actually, I spilled the beans. I have not invented it yet...

NDCent 05-22-2011 11:00

After watching the video it seems the pit owner is a perfect example of responsible pet ownership. :upeyes:

Berto 05-22-2011 11:01

I think if you go around rearing any beast, it should kill you...for humanities sake.

To elaborate, the Kirkland Police are apt to throwing folks under the bus with stuff like this, all it takes is one witness who hates guns.

I think I recognize the shooter and if he is who I think he is, he knew what he was doing.:supergrin:

Fedor 05-22-2011 11:15

Too bad he didnt all three. Pit Bulls shouldnt be running loose.

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.

Something tells me it isn't a great idea to have three of anything off leash.

No matter how well they may react to voice commands, stuff can happen.


And it appears in this case, that's exactly what happened.
