And for some better news …

A good Samaritan was credited with stopping his truck in Council Bluffs and killing a dog that was attacking a 77-year-old woman Sunday.

Apparently the woman was in her yard with her own dog, a miniature Pinscher, when an American bulldog came at her and her pet. She tried to protect her dog by wrapping herself around it, so the bulldog attacked the woman instead.

Hearing her cries of help, a passerby pulled his truck over and tried to pull the dog off the woman. When he couldn’t do that, he pulled his pocket knife and killed the dog.

The dog will be tested for rabies, but Council Bluffs police said it was properly tagged.

The woman wasn’t injured.
