Dog bites man; man shoots at dog
A Labrador mix had its tail nicked by a bullet after the dog attacked a man in a Plantation neighborhood on Wednesday, according to Plantation police.
The man had a concealed weapons permit, said police spokesman Detective Robert Rettig.
The confrontation happened shortly after 3 p.m. in the 10100 block of Southwest Third Street.
The man was walking down a driveway to the street when the dog attacked him, Rettig said.
So the man fired a shot at the dog, nicking its tail.
The man suffered a minor dog bite. The dog had an injured tail. Both are expected to recover.
