4 thoughts on “Police Shoot Aggressive Pit Bull Three Times with 'Double-Ought' Buckshot

  1. I have personal knowledge of a red nosed pit bull surviving a police officer handgun shot to the skull.

    See http://www.bigredkennels.com and take a look at "Rocky"

    This dog has a scar on the top of his head. With this in mind, how can the average mother, father or child stop an attack by one of these animals?

    • use a more powerful handgun;police usually carry 9mm which would take several shots to kill. if you use a .357 magnum loaded with hollow points, one shot will drop the dog where he stand and the hollow point bullets are best because they expand on impact causing extreme damage to the pit bull but being highly unlikely to pass through the dog’s body and harm someone innocent. a .357 mag will knock down a bear, it will drop a pit bull too. they’re not that expensive but they are loud; I highly recommend a .357 mag revolver because they are double action and sometimes if a dog has hold of one of your arms, if you can get one hand on the gun, you can fire it just by pulling the trigger. hope that helps.

  2. It's refreshing to hear a police chief who hasn't been drinking the pit nutter kool-aid and isn't afraid to tell it like it is. Typical police protocol with pits is shoot first and worry about the paperwork later. Only when there's real danger of hurting a person in a densely populated area will they go for other methods first, like tasing.

  3. My first thought was that police shotguns usually have an open choke, and with only 8 pieces of shot flying in a large pattern, (assuming an average 2 3/4" load) it's sometimes difficult to connect with vitals. But at just 3 feet? That dog should have gone down like a sack of potatoes.

    Wow. I guess all you can do is keep shooting.

    Or, we can ban pit bulls and put a stop to this nonsense.
