So if an agressive dog comes in your yard, you are not allowed to defend yourself? This does not make a bit of sense. I guess if an agressive person came into your yard, you could not claim the Castle Defense and would still be charged for discharging a weapon. Some of the Laws of WV have more BS tied to them that what makes common sense.

I guess I would be arrested. If a dog, snake,wild
animal of any kind was in my yard to do harm to my family, I would shoot it to. The law can be just a little unjust in some areas. More time should be
spent on drugs, dealers and people breaking into other peoples home.

you are exactly right! it seems that no one cares about our society any more. our children are at stake, no one seems to care. breaks my heart to read about or see small children in a house where their own parents are making meth,they are slowly being poisoned to death, the dogs get better care! citizens need to unite and lets have a revolution!!

The Castle Defense only applies if an intruder comes into your home. Doesnt go toward your property at all. If you shoot someone on your front porch, you will get in trouble. They have to physically be in the home. I learned that in my Concealed Weapons class the other day. So when a cop tells you to "shoot first, ask questions later" that is not the case.

From what I read of the castle law, it is quite broad and wide, especially if you are protecting someone else. I look at it this way, I would rather be judged by 12 than carried by six!

i read the story and he said he called and then it says he only called days later when the owner came about the dog. police usually file the charges and they are usually always dismissed by the court later because they weren't at the scene. it doesn't say who told him to dump the dog but who ever did was wrong. the local humane officer should have benn called also.
