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).

Mr. Lee did not sustain any serious injuries (1090).

On 9 Sep 13 Jerry Felton, age 44, 803 Grandview Avenue, New Matamoras, reported after he heard the sound of a window breaking he looked outside his home and observed an unknown subject attempting to enter his truck.
