On 9 Sep 13 Barbara Miller, age 66, 7120 State
Route 676, Stockport, was walking through a dark room in her
home when she tripped and fell over her daughter in law’s
one year old bullmastiff. The dog immediately attacked Barbara
and left bite marks behind her left ear, on her right arm and
on her left shoulder. Barbara also had had several lacerations.
Barbara’s daughter in law, Trisha Miller, age 27, attempted
to intervene and push the dog off Barbara but she was also bitten
on the right arm. Lillie Miller, age 37, 1384 State Route 550,
Amesville, also tried to assist and was bitten on the stomach,
both hips, right leg and right hand. The women eventually freed
themselves and sought refuge in a vehicle parked outside. Lillie’s
thirteen year old son heard the attack taking place and loaded
six or seven rounds in a .22 caliber semi-automatic pistol.
With the women free, the teenager discharged all of the rounds
in the handgun at the dog but was unable to subdue him. The
teenager then retrieved a .30-30 rifle and shot the dog once
in the head. The Beverly-Waterford Fire Department transported
the victims to Marietta Memorial Hospital for treatment to their
wounds. They were slated to be released after receiving stitches
and bandages (592, 610).
