Largo Man Shoots Dog In Self Defense

A homeowner shot and killed a dog that broke through the fence and attacked his pet on Monday night, police said.

Police said George Frank, of 334 Lake Palms Drive, was within his rights to protect himself from the dog. No charges are expected to be filed stemming from the incident that occurred at 7:30 p.m.

The dog, a chow mix, attacked Frank’s dog, police said. Frank tried to separate them when the chow mix started snarling at him. Then, Frank shot two rounds into the dog, killing it instantly.

Frank has a concealed weapons permit and was armed with a 9mm handgun.
