A Summerville man claims he shot a pit bulldog after it charged after him twice Friday morning, according to a Chattooga County Sheriff’s report.
Chris Burrage, of Back Berryton Road, was mowing the grass around 9:30 a.m. when a gray-colored pit bulldog charged at him.
“Mr. Burrage advised that the dog first charged at him on the mower then ran back toward his neighbor’s residence. Mr. Burrage advised that the dog then turned and charged at him again while he was on his lawnmower,” Deputy Nick Robinson reported. “Mr. Burrage advised that the second time the pit bull charged at him, he fired two rounds at the dog,
striking it once in the neck.”
Burrage called the sheriff’s department and requested a report. Deputy Robinson was shown where the dog died in Burrage’s yard.
