Skip to comments.Man attacked by pit bulls in Kirkland park, opens fire ( WA )

A leisurely Saturday afternoon in the park quickly mutated into a real-life horror scene when three pit bulls attacked a man and his German shepherd without warning, police said.
During the unprovoked attack, the man pulled out his concealed weapon and opened fire, hitting one of the pit bulls and scaring off the others.
"If I didn't have my gun - I'd be dead right now," he later told KOMO News.
"It was an instant decision. It's not something I wanted to do. I love animals."
Kirkland police Sgt. Rob Saloum said the violent drama unfolded Saturday as a local man was playing catch with his 3-year-old German shepherd across from Juanita Bay Park, in the 9700 block of NE Juanita Drive.
At the same time, another man was there with his three unleashed pit bulls.

Someone call the UN; their bill granting animals the same rights as humans just got violated/sarc
I have a CCW and the pit bulls would have ALL been history on the first attack!
I'm with you there. As a cyclist I have had a few run-ins with mutts over the years. Any dog ever bites me, pit rotty whatever, he's dead. If I can't get to a firearm I figure to cut his heart out with my Mel Pardue. If the owner has a problem with that, we'll sort it out after I dispatch his mongrel.
Wasp spray is good too but bear spray reaches out thirty feet for almost thirty seconds. Wasp spray is good against people attackers and is cheaper than p-spray. (my dad, brothers and my uncle are all ex-military and know this stuff).

We used to take our maltipoo to the large dog park in Redmond. Now, we get out of the car and as soon as the dog gets in the first part of the park, he will go no further. Three times we tried. We don’t take him to dog parks at all any more.
Anybody have any Obama spray?
My husband insists I carry a can of wasp spray in my Tahoe. I pray that I will never have the need to use it, even for wasps.

Justin needs to be brought up on charges. By the way, why were this guy's pit bulls unleased? Isn't there a lease law there?
I’m always wishing for the headline:
Pit Bull Owner Shot
Same here. But I back it up with my Beretta Tomcat pistol. My dad insists I carry it.
Anybody have any Obama spray?
Picked up by the SPCA?
Nope - but I bought some wine and drank it Obama self.
Ah, this guy is an obvious nitwit. He'll probably be charge with the attack. I'd give him an extra charge for being stupid.
Last year 2 of my now departed neighbors pits came down to our farm. I didn’t know it at the time but they killed one lamb,our female Great Pyrenees went after them. In the battle that ensued my girl got her muzzle cut some but our big male Pyrenees came and joined the battle. This is one big dog not to be messed with, he(Weighed in by our vet last week at 202lbs, all muscle) He snatched up one of the pits by the hind leg and literally tore the leg off. The other pit took off. My wife found the lamb a short while later but saw the whole fight. I hate these dogs to no end.
