A man accidentally shot his own dog while trying to shoot an attacking pit bull dog near Spokane.
KHQ reports sheriff's deputies responding to the scene Sunday at Riverside Village Estates found the wounded dog and the angry owner.
Deputies say a woman walking the pit bull let it run free, and it attacked the other dog in the owner's yard. He grabbed a pistol, intending to shoot the pit bull, but shot his own dog instead.
Deputies turned the case over to the Spokane County Regional Animal Protection Service.
