I was attacked by a dog while delivering a year ago. It was traumatizing. Besides that the worst situation I ran into was a free roaming dog on the Preston powerline access route. We were trying to get back to the car and it would not move. Snarling and barking and being generally aggressive. We yelled and screamed trying to get the home owners attention but no luck. Tried throwing bits of cliff bars into its yard but as soon as it ran to eat it ran back. We ended up beating through brush quietly on the south edge of the power line to get around. My friend bought a gun not long after due to the situation.

I'm surprised all the anti gun use advocates on here haven't spoken up on here for just using bear spray, air horns, one of the high freq whistles. Surely the air horn or whistle would be less damaging if they were at all concerned about the dog or a pissed off dog owner.

I put out some bird seed this morning and not long after heard dogs barking nearby. Looked out to see the neighbors two dogs heading up my driveway , so grabbed my 9mm and fired off a round, scaring them off. If it's not bad enough now having close neighbors and with dogs running loose, he has lied to me twice as to having any dogs at all. Not sure why, maybe doesn't want anyone to know because insurance companies charge more for insurance when one has dogs. Pretty hard to not know, they bark all the time and run freely. People are annoying.

Go placidly amid the noise and waste, and remember what comfort there may be in owning a piece thereof.

Not at all, up here in the deep, dark woods, we have no neighbors (except for the one) in any other direction for miles, so target practice is a common occurrence and expected, no one or any animal was in harms way, but thanks for your response, I get your concern if I lived in a populated area.

Now we have a skunk hanging around, first one I have seen up here above Priest lake. Maybe it will meet up with the neighbors dogs? I either need to stop feeding the birds or find an alternate way that won't attract varmints. My Mom would feed them everyday and previously I never have until she got me started doing it because she was basically chair bound the last year or so of her life. So it goes.
