Man shoots attacking dog at Rocky River Metropark
Posted by Donna J. Miller/Plain Dealer Reporter December 30, 2008 20:09PM

A Metroparks visitor carrying a concealed gun fatally shot a rottweiler that attacked his leashed dog at Tyler Field off Valley Parkway.

Rangers spokeswoman Dianna Kall said this is what happened about 3:30 p.m. Saturday:

The armed man was walking his Labrador on a leash when the leashed rottweiler broke free from its owner and attacked. The two dog owners tried to separate the dogs. When pulling and kicking failed, the Labrador owner shot the rottweiler dead.

Rangers collected statements from the two men and five witnesses. They said the man with the guy was carrying it legally. Concealed carry is allowed in the Metroparks. Park Prosecutor Joe Feighan will decide whether charges will be filed.

The Labrador is recovering from its injuries.
