CHICAGO (CBS) — A Waukegan woman said she believes she was the victim of retaliation, after she shot and killed a pit bull that was attacking another dog she was watching.
Keith Turner, a local activist, and an anonymous donor have put up $1,250 as a reward for information leading to the person who fired several gunshots through the back of Romena Rhyan’s house late last month.
She said she believes the shooting was in retaliation for her killing a pit bull that was mauling another pit bull on her property while she was dogsitting last month. She claimed she warned the dog’s owner she would shoot the pit bull if he didn’t get the dog off hers, but she said he didn’t make much of an attempt, and then asked why she fired her gun.
“This has been a very traumatic experience for me,” she said.
