When the Slatington, Pa., police chief, on a day off of work, heard a dog was viciously attacking a neighbor, he jumped into action.
According to a report in The Morning Call, Chief David Rachman heard neighbors calling for help, so grabbed his personal handgun from his vehicle and ran toward the cries. When he got there, a dog was standing over the bloody, motionless body of a woman who had obviously suffered a severe attach.
When the dog started attacking the woman again, the police chief fired twice, hitting the dog and sending it fleeing. The victim of the attack, 32-year-old Lisa Green, later died at a nearby hospital. The dog, which was owned by the victim, was later euthanized.
