Man With Conceal Carry Permit Saves Two Women Being Attacked By Pit BullTulsa, OK – Two women were seriously injured after a pit bull burst through the door of a home and attacked them, not stopping until a bullet was put into the back of the dog’s head.

The women were in a Tulsa neighborhood doing some old-fashioned, door-to-door ministering when they arrived at one home that contained a pit bull that did not appreciate them doing the Lord’s work.

After knocking on the door, the pit bull burst through the door and began attacking the women, biting them in their faces, arms and legs. The dog’s owner and witnesses tried helping, but were unable to get the dog to stop mauling the women.

But Michael Harrell, who was at work a few blocks away, heard the victims’ screams and had two items to stop the dog in its tracks; a conceal-carry permit and a handgun.

After rushing to the home in his truck, Harrell tried getting the dog off of the two women so he could get a clear shot. After about 10 to 15 seconds of yelling at the dog, the pit bull finally quit attacking the women and charged after him.

“I asked the lady, ‘Is this your dog?’ She said yes. I said, ‘Can I shoot it?’ She said yes. And I shot it in the back of the head,” said Harrell.

“There’s absolutely no doubt in mind, after 30-plus years of police experience, that he saved the lives of these two ladies,” said Cpt. Steve Odom with the Tulsa Police Department.

The owner of the dog will not face any criminal charges, but was issued two citations — one for having an un-neutered dog and another for not registering it. In defense of the homeowner, you can see in the following video that the two women had to get to the front door by first going through a gate.

    That pic. The dog looks like it’s got Down Syndrome.

  • DarianTheBarbarian

    Sometimes you have to do what’s necessary. Sad for everyone involved, including the dog.

  • Sam

    But of course, the most important question is: has it taught those jesuspeddlers to stop trying to make unwanted deliveries?

  • Athena

    I can’t say I haven’t fantasized about this very thing happening to those who knock aggressively on my door to preach their superstition…

    Yay for a concealed-carry hero, though! We could always use more of those.

  • kimbev69

    sorry but if i see a sign “beware of dog” on a door or window and i am stupid enough to open the gate and walk in when obviously i am not invited than i deserve to be mauled……i feel bad for the women of course…but maybe they need to take their bible thumping selves elsewhere…

  • kimbev69

    his eyes are pretty wide set aren’t they..and that grin … where the heck did morbid find this pic? or is it of the actual dog

  • wastintime

    He found it in his family photo album. It’s probably an uncle or.some shit.

  • reakaleak

    so the “pitbull” broke through a door, attacked two women at the same time, and then got shot in the back of the head while charging the man that shot him… I just don’t see how that adds up.

  • Athena

    It’s a conspiracy.

  • wastintime

    I have mixed feelings on this. It says the dog burst through the door. That makes me thin the dog was inside the house and lunged through the door or pushed past someone to get to them. But they were going door to door to peddle their Jesus shit,so…..it’s a toss up.

  • kimbev69

    lmbo an uncle hahah

  • kimbev69

    doesn’t quite sound right and the dog apparenlty stopped attacking the women? to go after the man who drove up to the house from blocks away…it is a weird story

  • wastintime

    Okay I just clicked the link and read more about it. The beware of dog sign is visible in the window. So what the fuck made them think they were so special they could just ignore that warning?

  • velvetjoneslives

    So if it were little girl scouts selling cookies would you feel differently? While I hate bible thumpers as much as anyone, nearly being killed for knocking on someones door is not acceptable in any way, shape, or form. If the home owner had walked out and shot two people on their front porch they would be hauled off to jail in a heart beat, yet it is somehow acceptable for their dog to do the same amount of damage?

  • Buffettgirl

    Awww Sam – I think he’s a cute smilin’ little fool…

  • Buffettgirl

    Hopefully this’ll learn those ladies ’bout what “Beware of Dog” means….

  • newstarshipsmell

    The girl scouts would’ve stood a fighting chance, at least. They could toss their cookies in one direction and run in the other.

  • http://www.dreamindemon.com Morbid

    I don’t see how it doesn’t adds up. It’s pretty clear if you apply a bit of common sense. The two women went in through the gate, ignored the Beware of Dog sign in window. The dog barreled through the door, either a screen or because it was partially open. The dog alternated attacking both women, who were probably both trying to help each other. Dude rolls up, stands on other side of gate trying to get dog’s attention. He politely asks owner if he could shoot the dog, she says yes because she doesn’t want two dead women in her front yard. Man shoots dog in back of head, probably while standing on other side of fence.

  • http://www.dreamindemon.com Morbid

    They are easy to create, that’s for sure.

  • newstarshipsmell

    Well, the article doesn’t mention them being Mormons, so it probably isn’t magical underwear bravado. Probably just plain old stupidity.

  • Sam

    I have a weak spot for downies – my sister is one :).

  • Buffettgirl

    Now I get it and see what you mean. ;-) Doesn’t he look like he wants to say “I luv you!” outloud instead of just with his eyes? Our lab/rot mix speads a large portion of his day staring at “Dad” in utter adoration and worship, kind of like the goofball in this photo looks. I love my Charlie-dog! <3

  • http://www.SomeLikeItDead.com Manda Malice

    Regardless of the breed, if the dog was on it’s own property, why would the owner be charged with anything? The dog would have been protecting it’s own property. And isn’t that WHY many people have dogs?

  • http://www.SomeLikeItDead.com Manda Malice

    Okay, so I’m reading that there was a “Beware of Dog” sign!?!?

    I’ve learned over the years that most people are to dumb to bother reading stuff like that. We volunteer as “Fosters” for a local animal rescue and we had this Boxer mix that could jump a SIX FOOT FENCE with no trouble at all. So my Husband ran a electric wire along the top of the fence to put a stop to it. (And it did) Well the “meter reader” must not have been able to read the sign we had up OR his paperwork cause he shocked the shit out of himself, freaking me and my dogs out AND we DON’T EVEN USE THAT COMPANY! So he had NO REASON to go in our back yard to begin with. Dumb ass then went in my neighbor’s yard were there is a “BEWARE OF DOG” sign right on her gate and not only got his ass chewed up, but BEAT her dogs with a big ass pole he was carrying. And my neighbor WAS HOME! She was in and out of her garage doing yard work, didn’t see him come to her home. All he need to do was ask her to put the dogs up. I call the gas company the dude worked for and told them I was scared for the guy’s safety. He lucky he didn’t get his ass beat being that freaking stupid.

    ANYWAYS, few Father’s Days back I got Hubby a doormat that says “Nevermind the Dog, Beware of Wife” and this whole story had me envisioning me busting threw the front door (We are fixing to replace it cause it’s got a big ass CRACK down the middle of it. So I so could do it right now) and chasing the ladies from the church on the next street that always leave those freaking flyers on the door! Biting them on the ankles and shit! That would be so badass!

    Anyone who tries to spread the myth of Jesus deserves it IMO.

  • LeaveMeBe

    LMFAO! They could have avoided this if they had their magical underwear on. And pulled it up over their heads. Dog teeth and Satian’s talons cannot pierce said underwear. :)

  • Wildheart

    OK you guys have GOT to stop this when I’m eating M&Ms!! The little wet bits are a bitch to wipe off the monitor! Satian indeed! :)

  • http://www.SomeLikeItDead.com Manda Malice

    If the Girl Scout couldn’t read and wasn’t accompany by an adult, being bitten by a dog would be the least of their problems! Good friend of mine daughter is a Girl Scout and they have a crazy amount of rules for how the girls are to sell cookies. Entering the yard of someone they do not know, without an adult is a HUGE “No No”.

  • abbys_mom

    Frankly, I don’t believe anyone should have a dog so dangerous that they have to put a BEWARE OF DOG sign up, unless the setting is WAY, WAY out in the country…”Jesus peddlers” or not, it seems this dog would’ve lunged at and attacked ANYONE coming to the door. That’s too dangerous to be in any neighborhood that is populated with people the dog may not be familiar with.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Anna-Hall-Grillot/100000054600337 Anna Hall Grillot

    Am I the only one who thinks this smiling pic of satan’s spawn is completely adorable?

  • Heather_Habilatory

    For SURE it is. That’s why I love the internet now. Soooooo many of my friends have kids in GS and they post to their FB: “My kid is selling GS cookies!” BAM!!!! Their status explodes with people who want Thin Mints!

  • Heather_Habilatory

    That’s why I’m getting a moat and crocodiles.

    Everyone ignores the beware of dogs signs, obviously. Gotta shake it up a bit.

  • Heather_Habilatory

    You. NEEEEEEEED. to do this and post it to youtube.

  • Heather_Habilatory

    I find that opening the door wearing only an XXL men’s Marilyn Manson t-shirt and last night’s makeup, and threatening to sacrifice them to your dark lord is a fantastic way to make pretty much any door-to-door shaman stop coming to your entire neighborhood. No pit bull needed.

  • http://www.SomeLikeItDead.com Manda Malice

    Fuck yes Thin Mints!
    And it still wouldn’t be the dogs fault! In no way am I saying it would be the kid’s, but what kind of parent let’s their kid wonder around like Dora the damn explorer? The own had a fenced yard, sign up and the dog lock behind the dog. Sounds to me like someone just intervened on some darwinism.

  • http://www.SomeLikeItDead.com Manda Malice

    This seems to do the trick around my home!

  • kimbev69

    I would hope kids dont go door to door anymore ever since that kid in nj was taken inside by a teenager and raped, murdered and hidden under the bed, and no they didnt deserve it but do u think its the dog owners fault? Cause i dont, they had no business on private property in my opinion but of course didnt deserve to be mauled

  • lyssdexia

    Maybe they were dyslexic and thought the sign said “BE AWE FOR GOD” and they got all excited cause they thought it was a church?

  • lyssdexia

    I think that this dog in the picture is really cute. But I also think that this dog in the picture is HI-IIII-III-IGH-HHH!!! I mean, look at those eyes…….

  • http://www.facebook.com/richard.hurley.9 Richard Hurley

    Usually the pit bull crowd chimes in on these stories and tells us how docile the breed is. That may be true but these pit-bull stories are all too common. I am not a lawyer but I don’t think that knocking on someone’s door constitutes trespassing but I certainly wouldn’t ignore the “beware of dog sign” either!

  • tkaz

    Yay for the hero!!! And yay for him thinking in the moment & asking if he could shoot – imagine if they sued him or something!!?
    Morbid, AWESOME pit photo…the irony is felt.

  • FrikkenFrak

    Well, since I just saw a headline about a girl being attacked by a pack of Chihuahuas, I’ll sit this debate out.

  • come_and_see

    I don’t think a concealed carry permit really mattered.

    If I was in my house and I saw my neighbor was getting fucked up by a dog I would grab one of my guns and blast it even though my license isn’t for concealed carry.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Anna-Hall-Grillot/100000054600337 Anna Hall Grillot

    You are probably right. Must be why he isn’t biting the face off the camera person.

  • Cassy_Again

    Not neutered. I’m telling you, people need to be charged for having animals that are potentially dangerous and no neutering. I don’t care if there was a Beware of Dog sign, what if the person entering didn’t speak English, or it was a small child approaching the door? Your damned dog still doesn’t get to jump out and eat people just because you put out a sign. It’s a public menace.

  • Buffettgirl

    Well done! ;-)

  • http://www.facebook.com/schofieldmisty Misty Sue

    I’m going to hell, that was fucking hilarious!!

  • howhavetheylivedthislong

    …I think the shot came from the grassy knoll……….

  • Jessica Stewart

    Maybe the dog was going after the bibles and the ladies just wouldn’t throw them?

  • http://www.SomeLikeItDead.com Manda Malice

    I would think the bigger fault would lay with the parents of the child. Why in the Hell would you let a small child just go up in someone’s fenced yard without accompanying them? But don’t get me wrong, there is no reason what so ever to have a dog that violent and can not be controlled. I just would be far more upset with someone just letting their kid go into a yard of someone they must not know. Cause if they knew them, they would likely know they had a mean ass dog. Still, either way letting your kid play Dora the Explorer is dangerous!

  • velvetjoneslives

    Yeah, I nearly snorted iced tea on to my keyboard after I read that one.

  • newstarshipsmell

    True. We know that pit bulls come straight from Hell and answer to Satan, after all. But then, I’d still think they’d prefer the taste of sinful human flesh over sacred woodpulp.

  • Chinchillazilla

    Dogs will switch targets readily when they’re in a frenzy. I don’t know how they decide which ones to go after, but they will abandon one and go for another instead.

  • Chinchillazilla

    I want to put one up just so the Mormons leave me alone. He’s a nice dog, but he goes nuts when the doorbell rings, barking and snarling. If you REALLY piss him off, he might nip. The Mormons don’t have to know he’s not a monster, though.

  • reakaleak

    Less than 25% of people can properly identify a pit bull. There are many breeds that look similar,and a lot of ignorant people that have never even seen one.

  • techsupp0rt

    Hell, the picture on this article isn’t even an actual pit bull.

  • techsupp0rt

    I used to have a border collie who was very well mannered, but he was also a guard dog. He was fine anywhere and everywhere, with children, adults, small animals, big animals, anything. But in his yard, if we weren’t present, you had to have permission to be there. If you did not, there was a problem. He knew who had permission and who didn’t.

    Being in a small town, we had a mail lady. Almost always her, delivering to most of the town. She not only knew our dog, but respected him. She would come to the fence, call him over, give him a command (he was very well trained), give him a treat for it, then come in and deliver the mail (our mailbox was at our door).

    One day she was sick, and there was a substitute. She apparently didn’t apprise him of how she handled the neighborhood dogs. Being summer, our door was always open, and our dog could go in and out. The mail man came up, reached for the mailbox, and had my border collie hanging off his arm in about .2 seconds.

    Just don’t go into a yard with a dog in it unless you know the people and know the dog, whether it’s a Yorkie or a Mastiff. And then, you don’t go in until the owner calls their dog, unless you already have an established relationship. If you come up to a fenced yard, don’t see a dog, but see an open front door – look for the sign about dogs, but also look for other signs of dogs – like dog shit, holes being dug, or a trail of worn grass just behind the fence (where they pace/run the most).

    Obviously, Jesus didn’t want this owner’s soul, otherwise he wouldn’t have sent his beautiful creation to smite their asses when they came to collect it.

  • ultracreep

    Where I live, if you are on private property without having been invited by the homeowner you are trespassing. (There are also tons of “No Trespassing” signs posted on houses and yards around here. Mississippians don’t like to be bothered with solicitors or people their pit bulls might have to bite I guess).

  • ultracreep

    So true. In a good many of these “pitbull” attacks, the dog isn’t one at all.

  • ultracreep

    We get door to door people asking us to go to their church all the time. I make my husband deal with it. He just cuts them off and says “Thanks, but I’m an atheist.” It sort of flabbergasts them into silence because this is the shiny buckle on the bible belt, and then they quietly walk away like they’ve just seen Satan.

  • Heather_Habilatory

    I haven’t had religious people come knocking on my door since converting… is it called converting? … to atheism.

  • Heather_Habilatory

    I don’t believe any one should have Justin Bieber albums as I’m certain they lead to brain damage, but hey, do as you wish.

  • Heather_Habilatory

    Yeah. Personal responsibility seems to be lacking these days.

  • hicusdicus

    Shoot the obnoxious Jesus freaks and give the dog a treat. A terrible waste of a good dog.

  • hicusdicus

    Yeah! My rottweiler loves cookies.

  • Sam

    WTF? What kind of fuckface downvotes the fact that i have a sister with Down’s?? Seriously, get a life!

  • driven .

    lol@ can I shoot it? wtf I woudl have unloaded on those hounds from hell.. what kind of retard would not only own these beasts but UNFIXED ones at that? the pos dogs actually went thru the ** door… talk about a ticking time bomb. . hopefully this will dispel the stupid whiney ” ooh its the owner.. not the dog” mantra These dogs are a ** menace as as the idiots who own em

  • Buffettgirl

    Wow, I wish I could answer that one for you! Dumbass people that need to cause negativity wherever they go?

  • warbonds

    good pitbull = dead pitbull

  • memyselfandi

    I respect everyones opinion….it was wrong to enter a gated area..but does’nt anyone agree that what we need to do is just wish them a speedy recovery…they are two women bitten by a dog….why hate people that preach anyway? If you do not want to listen just say no thankyou…thats all…what happened to common coutesy people!…This is why the world is so horrible, we forgot COMMON COURTESY. Just be nice and say …”I hope you feel better and get to what makes you feel happy soon”. Your fellow human.

  • memyselfandi

    People….why are yall being so mean…..there are people that really deserve to be mauled by not one but several dogs like child abusers, killers…etc…these women only deserve our sincere “get well soon” wishes…Please reconsider your hatefull words that one day can come and “bite” you… Remember what goes around comes around and dogs are everwhere.. Even outside gated properties… And anyone, your mom, little one, or yourself can run into one at the wrong time….it would be sad to remember what you said in the past and regret your inhumanity.

  • memyselfandi

    What a waste of the human race you are…you are talking about to women…forget what they were doing…they are two women that were hurt!….have a heart……yes they went into a gated area…wrong, very wrong, but they are humans that were badly injured by an animal and deserve COMPASION just because they are human!

  • memyselfandi

    So sad to hear such heartless person…..no wonder our world is so unsave and scary…people no longer care for other people and their pain….but I guess someonevwill laugh at your pain one day…..that will be worse than “hell”.

  • memyselfandi

    You know what…these people that go knock at our door are the people that are going to give words of encouragement and hope to the ones that have lost loved ones in masacres like the one that happened recently in a school or to the ones that lost limbs in yesterdays Boston event….at least consider that if you don’t need these people for that kind of help…there are others who are alone in their houses crying and seeking for some kind of encouraging words…..if you don’t want to see them or talk to these preachers just don’t….smile and say to continue looking for someone that needs them….and Have some NICE WORDS FOR THESE WOMEN whom are hurt and in pain.

    Respectfully, this may not be the site for you. We encourage black humour and sarcasm on here. In fact, it’s the black humour and sarcasm that has brought most posters here.

  • hicusdicus

    Religion has caused more human suffering and death than old age. Most humans deserve everything they get. If you want to pray for me and my dogs that’s OK.

  • hicusdicus

    Right on! What self respecting dog would chase after a bible. Over the years I have been feed so much junk bible food that I have developed bible belly. Mathew, Mark Luke and John have caused artery blockage and dementia.

  • hicusdicus

    You are right. That sort of thing could ruin the evolutionary cycle.

  • hicusdicus

    If they don’t speak English they better be there to mow the lawn.. Kids are OK though they taste like chicken.

  • hicusdicus

    You gotter snotter. I have seven dogs and all of them put together are not as mean as my 12 gauge.

  • hicusdicus

    Adoration and worship my ass. They are just waiting for a treat.

  • Buffettgirl

    Damn! Are you wired into my house??? He is a bit of a Begasaurus Maximus, but there is a lot of adoration and worship involved too. Last night when we got home from the music program we run you’d have thought we’d been gone days instead of 3.5 hours the way he jumped up on the couch, crooned and howled with joy and almost licked Dad’s ear off!
