A dog running loose...

in my area is SOMEBODY'S property.

Therefore, shooting the dog is destruction of private property. It's illegal to let a dog just run loose, and the owner is responsible for the damage done by their dog, but it's also illegal to shoot a loose dog.

Catch-22. And good luck finding the owner and making a claim stick.

I agree w/ Flyguy SKT and Hogdogs. Check on the local laws before shooting dogs.

(Of course, there's always the SSS* rule, but I don't advocate illegal behavior.)
