Neighbor Shoots Dog After Being Bitten Twice

The owner of a dog shot and killed Friday morning by a neighbor in the 6100 block of Kingsport Highway was advised to consult with the district attorney general's office or a private attorney, sheriff's deputies said in a report.

The dog was shot after the neighbor was bitten twice in the leg by the animal, Sgt. Glenna Estepp said in the report.

The man who shot the dog told deputies that he had had past problems with the German shepherd-husky mix "running his young calves" and had spoken to the owner about keeping it on her property, the report said.

The man told deputies he received a call at work from his wife, who told him the dog "was out in the field chasing cattle again," the report said.

The man came home and pulled into a common driveway shared with the dog-owner. He spoke with the dog-owner "and was telling her what the dog had been doing and told her to get the dog and tie it up," the report said.

As he walked back to his truck, the "dog came up behind him and bit him on his right lower leg," the report said. "He went to his truck and the dog followed."

The man got a gun out of the truck, and "as he came back around hollering at (the owner) to get her dog, it bit him again on the same leg," the report said.

"He then went after the dog and shot it two times, the second shot killing it," the report said.

The dog-owner told deputies she was running behind the man "pleading with him not to shoot it" and called the Sheriff's Department after the dog was shot, the report said.

The man "had two apparent fresh puncture wounds to his leg," the report said.

Greene County Animal Control was called and removed the dog, which the owner said she adopted about two months ago.

No charges were filed against either party.
