    Wis man saved from dog attack

    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.

    22 vs pit bull? I wouldn't want to try that bet myself.

    A 22 can hold 20 bullets .. plenty to put down a pit bull ... better 20 on target than none on ... a 22 lr round is a good one ! 50yrds I put them all on a dollar bill.

    I'd rather fire them personally

    I've downed a coyote with a P22. Two was enough for that so I imagine a few more would kill a PitBull.
