I just read a story on another site that has me outraged. An 11 month old puppy's owners have started a fundraiser to have their dogs leg amputated to save it's life. The dog was shot by their neighbor and the bullet blew off most of his leg. This occured in Nevada and the police have refused to do anything about it. They claim the neighbor has a right to fire a weapon on his own property. The neighbor was on his own property when he fired but the dog was also on his owners own property. Apparently the neighbor got pissed off at the dog barking at it's fence and shot it. Can this be legal in Nevada?????
