A few years back I was walking my dog in my neighborhood while cc. I was walking by a house that had 2 rottweilers that were very aggressive. He had roughly a 4'-4.5' fence which seemed sufficient as they were fairly large dogs and I didn't see them getting over it. Well he was doing some type of work in the yard and had a pile of dirt right by the fence at about the same hieght. Well I walk by and the dogs didn't notice me or my dog until I am about 40 yards from their dog house (which was a truck cap on the ground...this guy was a real classy). Anyway the larger male simply ran up the dirt mound and over the fence and began running after me and my dog. Immediately the owner came running out of the home trying to call the dog back and yelling that he was not "friendly". I ran about 4 paces and realized that running was a losing plan, so I stood on my dogs leash and drew my firearm and put my sights on the dog. I drew a visual line in the sand (prob around the 5-7 yard range) and waited for him to reach it when the owner's screams finally reached the dog and he stopped. Believe it or not, the owner was pretty pissed at me (even after I reholstered the weapon and showed him my permit) so I called the state police to inform them of what happened. The trooper basically told me "No harm, no foul" and they did not even send someone out (that suprised me). The man finally relented and took his dog home. To this day I wonder if my actions were an over reaction or not. Your thoughts?
