Early Wednesday morning, a Liberty County, Texas man, accused of shooting his neighbors dog, was shot in the leg by a deputy responding to the 911 call.
According to Wednesdays Click2Houston News, the 51-year-old man is accused of shooting his neighbors two-year-old boxer, “Sasha,” in the leg with a rifle.
Neither Sasha nor the shooter is liable to expire from the wounds, but only the shooter will be dealing with the problem for a lot longer than it takes the wound to heel. He’s been charged with attempted capital murder for raising his gun to the cops who came for him, for shooting the dog.
What did the dog do to get shot? Apparently, wandered 20 feet off his owner’s property on to that of Mr Crabby Pants here.
For people weary of cleaning up their neighbor’s mastiff’s poo, a short legal guide from someone who is not a lawyer, and therefore that is worth at best the $0 you have paid for it:
- Shouting “Get off my GD lawn, you mangy mutt!” — OK
- Shooting the mangy mutt on your GD lawn — probably not OK
- Trying to shoot the cops who came for you because shooting the dog was not OK – absolutely not OK.
Got it? Good. We don’t want to lose any blog readers in the black hole of the Lone Star State prison system.
