An episode right out of the  Hatfields and the McCoys. 

A Montana man who took exception to someone else giving his dog a biscuit faces a misdemeanor assault charge.

The Livingston Enterprise reports one man had reached over a fence to give a dog a bone Thursday when the dog's owner grabbed him and threw him up against a garage.

Livingston Police Chief Darren Raney says the dog's owner believed the other man was trying to poison the dog. He was not.

The biscuit giver was not injured.
