Article Description: Doomed Dog Saves Farmer's Life
A small dog which he was to kill in a few minutes as an egg stealer, today probably saved
the life of William P Pierce, 60, a farmer residing near Oregon, Illinois, when he was
attacked by a bull.
The bull had Pierce on the ground and was goring him when the dog came to the rescue. The
dog nipped the bull on the nose and bit him on the heels until he turned his attention
from the man to his tormentor. Then others, attracted by the scene by cries of Mrs Mae
Myrnes, housekeeper, who had unsuccessfully tried to drive the bull off with a pitch fork,
dragged Pierce to safety.
While Pierce was badly injured physicians think he may live The dog's sentence has
been commuted from death to all the eggs he can eat.
