What if it's against the law? Are you not going to defend yourself?

First off, i know NOTHING about kansas laws. If the dog is loose i would suggest calling the aspca or animal control. If that doesn't solve the problem and you have a legitimate reason to fear what the dog may do, shoot it. It's an animal not a person, this could however, lead to being sued if the dog has an owner, or facing criminal charges if you shoot it within city limits, but again i don't know kansas law.

I wish I had a answer,tell us more are you in the country or city?

I live in the country and have a neighbor that collects strays,his last stray that showed up looks like a pit bull/boxer mix?...I don't want to shoot my neighbors dog,that's tough on neighborly relations. I keep alot of roman candles on hand and when he charges I wait till the dog's just about 30 feet away and fire up a roman candle on his Azz lol

what are kansas laws on self defense. Doesn't matter how you fear for your life.

I've never understood the standard of not shooting an attacking dog, "because it's not the dogs fault", but will justify going rambo on a bad guy with nefarious intent.

If you are honestly in no-kidding, immediate danger, the writing on some document somewhere is pretty low on the list of concerns. Do what's needed. However, if it's simply annoying/nuisance, call animal control.
Google your town/city/county, most places anymore have links to their ordinances if you dig a little bit.

Call the Sheriff and ask, I had to when my neighbors decided to start keeping 2 100 pound pits next door named "Mac 10" and "Kilo", Both aggressive. We have a dozen children from ages 2-10 running between 3 houses and half a dozen small dogs between all the homes as well.

Well I live in city limits and I was outside on my porch enjoying a cigarette and this huge boxer just showed up growling and barking so I went inside and just ignored it and it went away. But an hour later it came back on my porch and was barking and growling at me as I watched it through my sliding glass door. So I went and got something that barks back ( high standard .45 acp) and stepped out side and it started to charge so I shot the ground next to it and it bolted and I haven't seen it since. And after the fact did I realize that I could have run the risk of loosing guns. So I posted a thread
