Vanessa Perrigoue had just taken her 4-year-old terrier, Ethan, out
for a morning walk in their Laguna Niguel neighborhood when two
large dogs jumped the smaller dog. Perrigoue screamed and attempted
to rescue Ethan, but the dogs, a pit bull mix and Labrador mix,
continued their vicious attack. Upon hearing his wife's screams,
Joseph Perrigoue grabbed his .45-cal. handgun and went to her aid.
The Perrigoues' dog, Ethan, had been killed and his attackers had
run off. Perrigoue followed the dogs' bloody tracks back to a nearby
apartment. When he knocked on the door, both dogs jumped out an open
window and attacked him. Perrigoue defended himself, shooting both
dogs. Animal-control officers took the wounded dogs away and
attempted to contact their owner, whom neighbors said had been out
of town for several days.
