    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:

    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.

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

    Yeah, it's all fun and games until you get what you're asking for and someone shoots your dog.
    I own a Pit and half the battle is undoing the fear owners like that create.

    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.

    How about 3 on a leash. Have to be a very powerful human to control that.

    Those dogs are nothing. My DNAs have had special tactical training and they're registered with the police as deadly weapons.

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

    I assume the Justin LaValley of Seattle's facebook page with this photo is the same person in the news story.

    one dog = one dog
    Two dogs = two dogs
    Three dogs = a pack
    I see a change in behavior when the number goes above two that I do not see with only one or two dogs.

    He'll probably sue the shooter for vet bills.


    Side note. Looks like the pit owner fell in a tackle box.. (LOL)
