The mayor of a small southeast Kansas town took the law into his hands over the weekend, responding to a call of two loose dogs and shooting them both from his car.
Don Call, the mayor of McCune, Kansas — population around 400 — says he was protecting his city, which had been dealing for the past six months with complaints about the dogs acting aggressively and intimidating residents.
The mayor says he had warned the owner to get rid of the dogs or else he would do it himself, according to TV station WIBW.
After receiving a complaint Sunday that two troublesome dogs had jumped through a screen to chase some children, the mayor loaded up his rifle and drove to the property. Once he spotted the dogs, he fired several times from his car, killing them both. He then loaded him into his vehicle and took them to his property, reports say.
The Crawford County Sheriff says an affidavit of arrest was sent to the county attorney office who will decide whether to issue a warrant for the arrest of the mayor.
