    We share the street and sidewalks with stray drug users everyday while they are high on drugs who could snap at any given moment. I think its fair that we should be able to just pull out our guns as well.

    Labs are highest on list of biters. But that is a high populated breed. A bad owner can make any breed bad. Running dogs are dead dogs. By law she could have legally shot the dog.

    Be careful when you go to Lime Creek and use the trails. There’s a group of irresponsible dog owners who take their dogs “coursing” in the area. For those who don’t know, coursing is the practice of allowing your dogs to be off leash so they can chase and kill wildlife. There have been several instances where large breeds of dogs have chased down and killed deer.

    Labs are not usually violent, but don’t worry, my dog won’t bite either. To bad she didn’t have a CCW.

      When the only tool you have is a hammer, all problems start looking like nails.
