Woman shoots dog she claims attacked her

A woman in a trailer park shot a dog that she claimed was attacking her while she got out of her car Wednesday night.

The woman, who lives out on Howells Mill Road, reported to Cabell County Sheriff’s that two German shepherd dogs approached her near her vehicle and became very aggressive.

Officers said the woman apparently shot one of the dogs with a .38 revolver, leaving it wounded and causing the other one to run off at the time of the report.

No arrests were made and the owners of the dogs were not present at the time. The woman and neighborhood witnesses told officers that the landlord has warned the owners about leaving their dogs without a leash. Officers notified Animal Control about the two dogs.
