Mark, 14, was attacked by two Rottweilers, each weighing more than 80 pounds, after he went to the aid of a young girl who was being attacked by the dogs in a neighbor’s yard. One of the dogs bit him on the arm as he attempted to fight them off. Another neighbor, Hudson, a retired factory worker who was five days from his 80th birthday, responded with a stick he had obtained from his woodpile and struck one of the dogs.
