SOUTH LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Police say a woman fatally shot one of two pit bulls that attacked her basset hound Saturday in South Los Angeles.
Officers were notified of the shooting at 835 W. Rosecrans Ave. at around 10:30 a.m. The woman said she and her dog were about to leave their apartment for a walk when the attack happened. She described how the two pit bulls suddenly appeared and lunged at the basset hound.
"She couldn't get the dogs off her dog. She went inside (her apartment) and got a gun," said LAPD Sgt. Philip Thompson. "She was defending her dogs."
The woman called police and was instructed to temporarily hand the gun over to arriving officers, which she did, police said. A large number of people surrounded the scene.

Too bad she didn’t get the other one.
Nice shooting lady, hope your dog is ok....
Never bring a dog to a gunfight...
Outside this being a limp-wristed puff piece;
1. go after the owner of the dogs
2. giver her gun back to her (without excuse)
This is South Central....cops maybe want to do a “legitimacy” check first.
A basset hound is pretty much a defenseless dog anyway.
Too bad she didnt get the other one.”
I wish she had too. Those kinds of dogs are really dangerous. The owners usually just see them as sweet pets though. I got bit in the face by a neighbor’s dog about 8 years ago and have stayed away from their house ever since. They decided to get rid of the dog recently, however, when it bit their own child in the neck and face. It’s always different when its your kid that gets hurt. Otherwise the dog can do no wrong it seems...
Way to go, lady!
That can resolved within an hour, as a primary investigation; not 180 days.
Submit report, return the gun if owner has been identified then process. America does not need bitchacrates interfering with lawful citizens.
More than likely to trip over it’s ears.
Perhaps a dumb question, but is there any law that a pistol needs to be “registered” in California?
Its always different when its your kid that gets hurt. Otherwise the dog can do no wrong it seems...
Sounds like the American attitude towards Senator Treason and Congressman Hairdo ...
Any dog that bites my kid is dead. And if the dog’s owner attacks me as a result... well, fill in the blanks yourself.
That's the new PC term for South Central, right?
Yeah, but unlike pugs who will bark at anything smaller than a interstellar gas could and get itself and its owner into a scuffle, the Basset hound can attempt to remain invisible.
She will probably never see her gun again, but it served her well. Another Pit Bull that wont eat a kid ro someone’s else’ pet. Yes I know it’s not the dog it’s the owners.
My gun was not confiscated .
