(9/28/13) A sheriff's deputy in central Wisconsin is recovering, after he was attacked by two pit bulls.

It happened late Thursday afternoon in Pittsville, when the officer stopped a woman for suspicion of drunk driving. Wood County Sheriff Tom Reichert (ry'-kert) said the driver – 48-year-old Cora Fuller – ran from her vehicle and into her house. She came out, and when the officer tried arresting her, two pit bulls ran out. They bit the deputy several times. The officer shot and injured both dogs before fleeing to safety in his squad car. The deputy was treated at a Wisconsin Rapids hospital for multiple dog bites, and was later released. One of the dogs was later euthanized due to its injuries. Fuller was cited for her fourth O-W-I offense.
