SAN ANTONIO TX - A PIT BULL CAME INTO A YARD AND RIPPED A BELOVED CAT TO PIECES




A Stone Oak family is seeking answers after they say a PIT BULL viciously attacked their cat, killing him in the front yard.
"Basically, nothing has happened, nothing has happened to prevent another attack," said Scott Flagg, who owns the cat that died Wednesday evening.
The Flaggs' calls to 3-1-1 and Animal Care Services have not sparked an investigation. The Flaggs filled out an animal bite report, but ACS told News 4 that's not the correct form.
Jessica Travis, ACS field supervisor, said the couple needs to launch a dangerous dog investigation.
"The best way to get that started is to come down to ACS, fill out your affidavit, your sworn statement, and we'll get an investigation started," Travis said.
In the meantime, Courtney Flagg says she's keeping her kids from playing outside.
"HONESTLY, ALL IT TAKES IS A SECOND FOR AN ANIMAL LIKE THAT TO START COMING TOWARD YOUR CHILDREN, AND THERE'S NOTHING YOU CAN DO TO STOP IT."

In fact there is something this Texas family can do to stop this or any other pit bull from terrorizing them: use Texas guns laws to their own advantage. In Texas, you have to get a permit to carry a handgun, but once you have that permit you can have the gun with you at all times -- including open carry.

Texas gun law includes a 'peaceable journey' clause. Even without a permit, you can carry a gun on your own property and while going from your property to your car. On the way to your car, you must conceal the gun if you don't have a permit.

Finally, Texas has a 'stand your ground' clause in its gun laws.

I don't understand why any Texas resident would be so passive and wait for animal control to do something, while the law generously allows them to do it themselves.
