    Opossum clash ends with arrest, dog shot

    Associated Press

    <!-- begin body-content -->SAN DIEGO - A dispute that began over the capture of an opossum in a residential neighborhood ended with police shooting a Rottweiler and arresting a man after stunning him with a Taser gun.
    A fight broke out in the Talmadge area of San Diego after a resident saw a large opossum running in the area Tuesday and asked a maintenance worker to corral the feral animal, prompting a call to police.
    An officer at the scene shot a Taser gun at one man who became combative, according to police reports.
    The man removed the barbs and fled through a neighboring yard, where a Rottweiler allegedly came at the officer. The officer fired several shots in self-defense, police said.
    The man was found and arrested a short time later. Police said they were evaluating him for being under the influence.
    The dog was taken to an animal hospital. Its condition was not immediately available.

    Let me get this straight, a cop runs through my yard, my dog does his job and attacks him, and the cops shooting the dog is "self defense"?

    So if you break into my home, I attack you, you shoot me.... it's self defense?
