ERIE PA - 2 PIT BULLS INVADED A HOME THROUGH AN OPEN WINDOW AND ATTACKED A LAB DRAGGING IT OUTSIDE - THE OWNER OF THE LAB FINALLY SHOT BOTH KILLING ONE!!!

A man shoots TWO PIT BULLS, killing one of them, after they attacked his lab. Police are still investigating whether or not that shooter will face charges.
Police say two pit bulls entered a home on the 200 block of East 29th Street through an open window and dragged a lab outside. The owner told police he tried to pry the pit bulls off his dog. When they wouldn't budge, he shot them.
Police Chief Randy Bowers says anytime a weapon is used, the situation is investigated thoroughly.

"Certainly you can't go around shooting dogs, but if a family's property, people or pets are in danger in the form of a menacing animal, those are circumstances that we will look at," Bowers says.
Bowers says without knowing all of the facts about the situation, he cannot comment on the use of the gun.

Pennsylvania law allows you to kill any dog that is in the act of menacing or attacking a human or a domestic animal. In such a case, you can even shoot the f*cker while its owner is standing right there next to it. Here's the text:

§ 459-501. Killing dogs; dogs as nuisances

(a) Legal to kill certain dogs.--Any person may kill any dog which he sees in the act of pursuing or wounding or killing any domestic animal, wounding or killing other dogs, cats or household pets, or pursuing, wounding or attacking human beings, whether or not such a dog bears the license tag required by the provisions of this act. There shall be no liability on such persons in damages or otherwise for such killing.

(b) Private nuisance.--Any dog that enters any field or enclosure where domestic animals are confined, provided that the enclosure is adequate for the purpose intended, shall constitute a private nuisance, and the owner or tenant of such field, or their agent or servant, may detain such dog and turn it over to the local police authority or State dog warden or employee of the department. While so detained, the dog shall be treated in a humane manner.

(c) Licensed dogs not included.--Licensed dogs, when accompanied by their owner or handler, shall not be included under the provisions of this section unless caught in the act of pursuing, wounding or killing any domestic animal, wounding or killing any dogs, cats or household pets, or pursuing, wounding or attacking human beings.

That's good news Sweetie Pie! It's just for the pit nutters and the gun haters that the media mentions the police have to do a routine investigation.
