Byron Park, 54, a Domino's Pizza employee, was making a delivery to a hotel just before midnight. As he returned to his vehicle, he was confronted by a 34-year-old man wielding a knife and demanding money. Park responded by pulling out his concealed handgun and firing once. The robber sustained a fatal wound to the torso. Maj. Tod Goodyear said of the incident, "[Park] was protecting his life. The guy had a deadly weapon and was going to kill him if he didn't give his money up." (Florida Today, Melbourne, Fla., 8/25/13)

A man was outside his horse barn early one morning when three large dogs surrounded him. The canines circled him as if preparing to attack. After efforts to scare the dogs away by yelling at them failed, the man called a neighbor who brought a shotgun. One of the dogs was shot and killed. The animal was tested and results reported that they are "dog-wolf hybrids" being bred by someone in the area. It was last reported that the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection had begun investigating the matter. The man who shot the animal was unharmed. (The Day, Long Pond, Conn., 3/31/14)
