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.
