On April 30, 2013, two pit bulls attacked an Allentown PA man as he was walking his dog on Emery Street.  As reported in The Morning Call, the victim was able to save his dog by placing it in his gated backyard.  When the 2 pit bulls came after him, he fired his gun to stop the attack.  One pit bull was hit and died from his wounds.  Police will not be filing charges vs. the victim since he had a gun permit and was entitled to protect himself.
