A Coosaw Island man shot and killed a neighbor’s dog after the dog attacked its owner, according to a Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office report.
The Coosaw Island Drive neighbors had been drinking all night before retiring to their campers, one of the men told deputies. The dog owner’s two pit bulls began fighting inside the camper, spilling out into the yard.
When the owner tried to break up the fight, one of the dogs began attacking him. The neighbor grabbed his pistol and killed the dog, the report said.
The dog owner was taken to Beaufort Memorial Hospital with a cut on his right hand.
