Man risks his life to save his dog

Vancouver, BC – A man and his missing dog were reunited earlier this week, but not before a life-threatening scuffle between the dog owner and the suspected captors.

The dog had been missing for a week when the owner found him on Granville Street. As he was walking away with the dog, the two suspects began verbally threatening him, and one of them pulled out a gun. The victim believed it was a pellet gun, and after physically fighting with the suspect, he managed to get the gun and toss it away.
