A naked intruder who was trying to choke a pet Rottweiler was shot by a homeowner in Miami Wednesday morning, police said.

The bizarre incident happened around 5 a.m. when the occupants of the home were awoken when they heard a commotion and dogs barking.

When the homeowner went to check out the noise, he confronted the suspect, who was completely naked and trying to choke one of the dogs, police said.

“He comes out and spots a person who is not only fighting with this dog but is naked fighting with this dog,” Miami Police spokesman Det. Willie Moreno said.

The homeowner opened fire twice, hitting the suspect in the leg once. The homeowner held the man until the police arrived.

    I guess the dog wasn’t responding postively to his sexual advances…

    Good thing the pup didn’t bite the intruder. Otherwise the owner might have had a situation…

    Is “choking the dog” something that I should look up on Urban Dictionary?

    @ RANDO Right. Instead of chewing the intruder’s arms off, he saved his owner from getting a visit from Animal Control!

    With the dangling fruit right there the dog could have taken more than the intruder’s arm off.

    Maybe next time he’ll just stay home and chock his chicken.

    Miami Police spokesman Det. Willie Moreno said. “This individual was acting irrational, fighting with the dog, and not only that, but at the point that the homeowner attempted to get this individual’s attention, he immediately jumped onto the owner and started fighting with him.”

    Yo, Detective Moreno! Did you happen to notice that the perp was NAKED?
    Maybe it’s just me, but that adds a whole nother level of batshit crazy psychopath.

    And what Buck Ofama said.

    Was it dark? The dog bump into him just as he was firing?

    Sorry, no leg shot from me, and if he tried choking my dog, he might want to change his name to Matt or Art.

    That will teach him not to try and hump the dog’s leg.

    If I caught some guy choking my dog, I wouldn’t have needed a gun. I would have peeled his naked skin from his body, like an overripe banana.
