    The fact that the Sheriff's Office is asking questions and making such statements within hearing of the media means the SO and NPS are not working together.

    Yes. Self defense against an animal is not the same legal standard as use of force against a human. A dog is what? It is property.

    Good advice but I really don't want to go "hands on" with an animal. You may win, but unlikely you would escape uninjured. I would prefer defense at a distance, say with bear spray or firearm.

    If threatened like that it is reasonable to draw a firearm on the dog(s) [not the owner]. Owner attitude might be very different at seeing their precious property in danger.
