    70 yoa saves neigbor

    Dennis Williams, above, did not hesitate to intervene to save a man being attacked by three pit bulls. The event was reported on July 21, 2014, in Washington County, Wisconsin.





    Mr Williams is in his 70s. He heard screams for help outside his house and saw a man on the ground being viciously attacked by three Pit Bulls. He grabbed two baseball bats from his garage, and started hitting the animals with the bats. It wasn't enough. He retrieved a pistol, and started back toward the scene. The animals started advancing on him. He shot and killed one dog and the others retreated. From TMJ4:



    "I will never forget seeing that attack, or hearing the screams," Williams says. "It was one of the worst things I've ever witnessed. The dogs were on top of the man and his dog. They were not going to stop. I first tried hitting the Pit Bulls with a baseball bat, but they wouldn't relent. There was blood all over the ground."









    The revolver used to stop the attack appears to be an Iver Johnson .22. Perhaps an alert reader can make a more positive identification. Guns are common in Wisconsin.

    Should have just dialed 911 "...err, I got some dogs that need to be shot..." and 5 sec later, 200 cops would have been there

    Is there anyone close to Washington County that could contact Dennis Williams?

    I would like to be able to talk to him and write up the incident with more detail.

    Unfortunately there are a lot of Dennis Williams in Wisconsin. Anyone have contact information?

    Kind of a bummer that he had to leave the scene to go get a firearm and come back.

    See, a year or two that would not be allowed. Now, it's both funny and true.

    ...and the victim of the dog attack possible shot in a tragic mistake. The Seasoned citizen attempting to assist would be stuffed, cuffed, ruffed up and then hauled down town. Ya can never know who the bad guys are when ya first arrive on the scene. According to one sheriff anyway.

    Naw, the old man would have been shot for resisting arrest.
    Provision for free medical attendance and nursing, for clothing, for food, for housing, for the education of children, and a hundred other matters, might with equal propriety be proposed as tending to relieve the employee of mental strain and worry. --- These matters obviously lie outside the orbit of congressional power.
