A WOMAN WAS waiting for a bus when three large dogs approached and
began lunging at her aggressively. She swung her backpack at them,
but they continued their onslaught That's when Patrick Jones saw
what was occurring and stopped his truck. He yelled at the dogs and
positioned himself in front of the victim. The woman said the dogs
"just wouldn't give up. They kept coming at us ..." Jones, a
concealed-carry permit holder, pushed the woman behind him and drew
his pistol. When the most aggressive dog lunged up at him, he shot
and killed it. "He's a life saver," the woman said of Jones. Lynden
Police Chief Jack Foster agreed, saying, "I think he did the lady a
big favor to stop and help."
