Injuries sustained to Anthony Wilson's face, torso, arms and legs were severe, but he was last reported to be in good condition after he was attacked by two dogs in his neighborhood. The dogs escaped from a yard early one afternoon and attacked 77-year-old Wilson. He tried to seek refuge under a pickup truck with little success. The dogs snapped at his legs and continued to bite and claw him, trying to drag him from the protection of the vehicle. A neighbor heard Wilson's cries for help and responded quickly when he saw the dogs attacking. The neighbor retrieved a firearm and attempted to scare the dogs away. But when the dogs then turned their attention to the neighbor, he fired, killing both animals. (The Times-Tribune, Dunmore, PA, 7/3/13)

An intruder entered a Ville Platte home with a gun at around 1 a.m. Sunday, intending to rob the owners. The homeowner said her kids were in bed when the intruder entered the front door wearing a black ski mask. He walked to the back of the house and confronted a friend of the homeowner, putting a gun to his head and demanding money. The friend refused, according to the homeowner, and the intruder attempted to fire the gun but it jammed and a fight broke out. Local police found the intruder fatally wounded on the kitchen floor, apparently killed by his own handgun. (DailyWorld.com, Ville Platte, La., 12/3/13)
