    Pit bull guarded Wash. woman who had heart attack

    (AP) – 12 hours ago

    BREMERTON, Wash. — Police in the Washington state city of Bremerton say a pit bull reported as a menacing dog was just protecting its owner who had suffered a heart attack and died on a sidewalk while the two were out walking.

    A detective says the 51-year-old Bremerton woman collapsed late Tuesday. The dog was loose once she fell and was being "protectively aggressive" — not letting neighbors help its owner. No one was bitten.

    A policeman flagged down to deal with the dog saw the woman lying on the sidewalk. He shot the dog with a stun gun, then he and a neighbor performed CPR until a rescue crew arrived and also tried unsuccessfully to revive the woman.

    The Kitsap Sun reports that when the dog ran home, the woman's roommate came looking for her.

    Did you notice that a stun gun was effective, no bullets necessary.
