Thread: Protecting Your Pets?

  1. #11
    Often times family pets will defend their owner from an animal attack while you draw your weapon to defend your life against the crazy dog or wild animal attack. This is NOT the same as using your gun to defend your animal. Make sure to get the story straight.

  3. In my area, the law indicates that it's perfectly legal to kill a predator to save livestock, but not for pets. I really wonder, with owning a dog seemingly practically a prerequisite for living in my area, whether any jury would convict on this though...or if you'd even get charged.

    Here in CT, animals do not have a right to self defense. Therefore, if a person came up to Rover and started beating him with a hammer, then you would have no right to use lethal force to protect him. However, if that same person came at you, and Rover just happened to get in the way, then you would have all the justification you needed for any force, up to and including lethal.

    As TekGreg stated, make sure that you get your story straight. It all depends on how your narrative flows.

    You don't need a permit as long as you don't conceal carry. Keep it holstered and open. When you are ready to find a CHP class we have a list of reputable CHP instructors you may want to consider.

    I suppose it all depends on where you live. Here in my county there is a bounty on them of $50.00 per animal. We have cattle farms all over the county and they will take down a small new born in a heartbeat and home pets of any type. My property (101 acers) is circled by cattle pastures and my hard woods. I just saw a large yote this A.M. while I was fishing on the lake crossing my neighbors pasture. I called my neighbor when I went home and tonight he will be hunted to try and rid the area of him. They are such a problem here that the farmes all put small donkey's in with the cattle for their protection. A donkey will kill a yote as quick as a 22-250 will.

  7. As a serious dog lover and believer of the to defend one's family (and if your dogs aren't, you don't need one), put a round over it head to scare off and dispatch it if that doesn't work. It is easier to beg forgiveness than ask permission.
