David, this thread is not about guns so why not try to give this person some HELPFUL advice?
She's not going to shoot the damn thing. You guys can discuss weapons elsewhere.
I must disagree with your reasoning, Mame.
From her description, this situation is a threat against her life.
Pitbulls have killed women before.
She needs the means to CONTROL
the situation in the event
, more violent, predatory emergency.
Her survival shoud not be left to the discretion
of the Pitbull.
I would agree with Jespah - I'd phone and write every single day to the neighbour with the dog, animal control, City, house complex insurance, police, whoever and everyone about this until that damn dog was either leashed or removed. And I would not stop.
Well, in the meantime while u r not stopping,
the dog is still a physical threat to her life.
She has described that in this thread.
If I knew her, I 'd be a lot more insistent in suggesting
that she have the means to sustain her life in the event of predatory violence
which is more
than just theoretical.
The squeaky wheel gets the oil and this is a hazardous situation, so be more proactive about it.
That is an excellent point, and one that I have ofen made,
but one shoud not be complacent in the meantime,
for the best.
