ROME TOWNSHIP PA - A LOOSE ROTTWEILER ATTACKED A NEIGHBOR - HERO - ANOTHER NEIGHBOR CAME TO HIS AID WITH A PISTOL AND SHOT THE DOG DEAD

A man being attacked by a neighbor's loose ROTTWEILER  on Thursday night was saved from more serious injury by another neighbor who intervened with a pistol and shot the dog. The incident happened on Reck road in Rome Township in Crawford county. 

Police say the man was attacked and bitten by the Rottweiler. An incident report stated the dog was not secured by a leash or a muzzle.

The victim was taken to Titusville Hospital for treatment. The dog is dead. The dog's owner is facing the possibility of summary charges in the incident.

Great shooting by the neighbour! :)

There's a video on youtube wherein a police officer tasers a stupid Rottweiler that is attacking him. A few times when I was in a crappy mood, watching that video cheered me right up. Unfortunately the vile beast survived though.

At the link there are several comments from a person who says there is a lot more to this story... something about the dog was originally inside a house with some kids, but then was trying to protect a woman.

The person seems really upset so I do think they might really be the Rottweiler's owner. I am getting the impression they didn't see these events unfold, but were told about it later.

It's too hard to decipher what happened from the partially illiterate person claiming to be the owner. Probably just another irresponsible owner who couldn't keep her mauler contained and it attacked a neighbor one too many times...

The Justice the Mule video always cheers me up. I usually have a hard time seeing an animal get injured, but a pit just running up and attacking a tethered mule? Get 'em, boy!
