Albert Gosiak (pronounced like go-shack) said he walked out of his East Vancouver house just for a minute Saturday morning. That’s when he met two pit bulls in his walkway.
Gosiak said the dogs were aggressive and he was trapped. He said he acted in self defense when he shot one of the pit bulls.
“It was just a snap judgment,” Gosiak said. “What do I do, fumble around? They were right there … I gotta do something now, so I pulled out my gun and shot them.”
