that sounds like a whole different scenario than shooting a dog because he's off of his owners property. a$$hole..

Still happened on Public property...a$$ho!e.

Public or my own property, I would protect my family or myself from a dog attack...by any means possible.

Now if it happen on the owners property (which it didn't)...well that's a whole different story.

So you get upset about him killing a dog (which I am also disgusted with) then call him the 'John Wayne' of the neighborhood. But if you shot him for doing that that is somehow okay with you? Pot meet kettle...

You made it sound like the dog bit one person and you ended it. I have a hard time believing that after multiple close calls as you said, animal control or the police wouldn't do anything.

Why would the police have to wait until the dog attacked again if it had already attacked multiple people? Seems like you left out some details there Rambo.

Did you tell the dog that if we was roaming around you were going to "take care of him"? Maybe you two could have worked something out... You probably should have just shot the owner and put the dog up for adoption... Seems like he was the one at fault, no need to take it out on the animal.

Why even bring up a story like this? You want to look cool for the forum? IIRC this thread was about neighbors and loud cars. Then suddenly you killed a dog... We gotcha Geronimo, you're a bada##, nobody messes with you...
I can't tell if you are stuck in an alternate reality or not? As far as I know the dog and I could not have communicated. That is why I talked to the cops and the owner. I also have not left any details out. The dog owner in question was well known by the police force and his family settled the area. The police there were simply favoring a local and were not going to offer any help until somebody got seriously injured or killed. I'm not a fan of lawsuits nor could I afford a lawyer. The guy would not pay for any of the medical bills or even apologize.

I tried to reason with those who were in authority. You claim not to value a dog's life over a human and yet you suggested I shoot the owner. I'm no fan of the guy and I was honestly tempted to beat him to a pulp when he threatened me, but I know it would have solved nothing. I think between the two of us you are much more dangerous (at least on the internet)

I am not a badass and never look for conflict. One of my best attributes is being able to keep my cool in the face of conflict. I am always surprised by it. I've never been in a fight unless I was forced into it.

You are right, I should probably never have shared the story. It happened years ago. I was just sympathizing with the guy who had to deal with an ignorant dog owning neighbor.

PS I love Rambo so I don't see that as an insult

Yeah, not sure what you're arguing here genius. I'm all for defending your/my family if someone/thing is on your property and threatening you. Roaming public streets in a city with firearms deciding what lives and dies...nah, thats not for citizens to handle. I'm sorry, did I miss the part about you being deputized? I'll leave things like that to the proper authorities. That's just what we need in this country, random Joes wandering the streets, eliminating perceived threats. Though maybe that's how things fly back there in assachusets...what a great state.

A$$hole.

I'm just messing with you man.. Obviously you couldn't talk with the dog...or shoot the neighbor. Though in a situation like that where the owner is the real problem, it's hard to hear that your only recourse was to kill a dog who didn't know any better. I do value humans lives over animals, that being said there's instances(this one included) where I'd side with an innocent animal over a negligent owner every time. The person knows better, the animal does not, that's what's supposed to separate us from them...

Who said I need a gun to defend myself a$$ho!e. Who's assuming now Sparky. Don't own a gun, do not wish to.

I'd take Massachusetts over your "going-down-the-tube" state any day.

I'm sure you will Ace, that's a ok with me. Plenty of "wicked cool bros" out here already. Maybe you could spread the word, tell 'em California's a "going down the tube" state hahaha...might help keep your ilk away.

A$$achusetts! That's rich...

Unfortunately I had exhausted my resources as far as dealing with the owner goes. This was not in a city by the way. It was out in the country and I never left my property with a firearm of any kind.

I just felt bad for everybody around this guy. My wife tried to befriend his wife who was afraid of the guy. I was his son's assistant scout master at the time. When he blew up on me his son was standing right there and maybe that is why I kept my cool. Trying to set a good example for the poor kid. Luckily I moved shortly after all this happened or it would have likely continued to be a tense situation.

Seriously though, all this internet arguing is ridiculous. I bet most of the people we argue with on a forum we would actually be friends with if we met them in real life. I can tell you that the few people who knew what happened to the dog thanked me. If you were living there you might have thanked me too.

Either nasioc has the largest population of total badasses -or- nasioc members have a penchant for exaggeration and creative writing. If even half of you do even half of what you say you'd do or have done, i might tip my hat...

anyway, carry on. back to bad-assery stories.

I agree with you man, though if I was there we probably would have come to a different conclusion. Something like taking the dog into a shelter as a stray, and not a local one where the negligent owner could have just gone and picked him up. It may have been put down in the end but would have at least had a chance(albeit a small one) at a better life. As a former grunt who's seen extreme violence and has unfortunately taken lives, I would expend all possible options before resorting to deadly force. Maybe I view any life (human or animal) differently after seeing some ended so violently and tragically. In a situation like this, the dogs not at fault, the owner is yet the dog paid with his life, sad.

Curious though, you did this to protect your family yet you moved shortly after killing the dog anyway...? That sucks man. Glad no one else was hurt though.

Peace

Thank you for your service btw. I know you fought for our rights and so we could have hope for a better life in a country that solves things without violence. If only our justice system would work perfectly.

The move was unexpected. I got a promotion I was not expecting.

The dog was impossible to approach. It would have mangled me if I tried to take it to a shelter. I did consider this option.

No worries man, some people you just can't reach, I know how that goes. No hard feelings maybe we can have ice cream together some time! Now I've gotta run, 18 holes calling my name... Happy Saturday!

Your disregard for human life is a little disturbing. Maybe you should wake up to reality and understand that when it does come down to a potentially life threatening situation you may have to do something you don't like to protect your family. My guess is that you don't have a family though since you fail to understand the gravity of the situation.
god damned right you did the right thing.....if people can not control their animals and those animals are a threat to people

the animal goes.....screw all the bleeding heart ashholes who cant understand that that is the best way to handle the situation

done.

LoL ... So many of you are absolutely ignorant by bashing the guy that shot the loose dog. Being in a public area does not protect an aggressive dog ... It in fact makes it more likely to be shot.

It is the owners responsibility to keep their dog under control, and on their own property. When an aggressive animal is in a public area, it can be dispatched legally either by a citizen or the police. Obviously having police do it is "cleaner", but any citizen can shoot the animal if need be and then report it to police.

Geronimo did that ... And there is nothing wrong with it. We are talking about a loose aggresive dog here ... Not a teddy bear hamster in a cage.

I know Subaru's are now "dog approved" ... But some of these responses are just silly. Some of you liberals need to stop believing all dogs are like Snoopy.

Its not a story, its the law ... Feel free to look into it and educate yourself.

As for political affiliation, call it a hunch. Only a liberal would see a moral dilemma in the shooting of a loose dog with a history of attacking people.

You've been measured and found wanting.

The good news is that we have room for you, on the conservative side of reality.

The only "bro" here is you, please leave.
