Odenton man uses rifle to kill dog in front yard

An Odenton man shot and killed Sunday what appeared to be a wild dog that had been terrorizing his neighborhood for several days.

John Yates, 52, of the 900 block of Patuxent Road, told officers he saw the dog in his front yard at 9:45 a.m. and knew it was the same dog that had killed a neighbor's goat a few days before.

He got his .22-caliber rifle, shot the dog one time and called police.

A neighbor, Barbara Routzahn, told police that the dog and several others running around the neighborhood had attacked and tried to eat her goat on Oct. 23.

Mr. Yeats and Ms. Routzahn said they had called the animal control office several times. Animal control did come to the neighborhood Sunday and caught one of the wild dogs, police said.
