Defecating dog sparks US shootout
Two neighbours in the US state of Mississippi drew weapons and fired at each other as an argument over a defecating dog ran out of control.
Mr Tehnet said he visited his neighbour to complain about dog “poop” on his property.
Mr Blasingame blamed him for shooting his dog the week before, Mr Tehnet said, and told him: “Just meet me at the levee and I’ll shoot you down.”
Mr Blasingame told AP he got his gun and drove off but Mr Tehnet did not follow so he returned to the neighbourhood.
The two men confronted one another again and each claimed the other produced a weapon first.
“He shot twice, I returned fire,” said Mr Blasingame.
