When his wife heard screams and saw two pit bulls mauling a
14-year-old boy outside their South Kitsap, Wash., home, William
Chambers grabbed his handgun and rushed to the scene. Forced to
shoot both animals to halt the attack, Chambers turned to watch one
wounded dog run off. But the other dog recovered and renewed its
attack on the child, and Chambers killed it. Authorities credited
Chambers with saving the boy's life.
