Teen Saves Boy From Dog Attack

ST. REGIS, Mont. (AP) - The mother of an 8-year-old St. Regis boy who was attacked by a wolf-dog hybrid last week is crediting a 17-year-old neighbor with saving her son from more serious injuries.

Brandyn Jones was watching television on May 13 when he heard screaming. Outside, he found Cody Lewis pinned by a 175-pound wolf-dog hybrid that was snarling and biting the boy. Jones grabbed a short metal bat, hit the dog until it backed off and then carried Cody to his house.

Anita Lewis says Jones is a hero. The dog's owner, John McClelland, agreed that Jones quite possibly saved Cody's life. Jones says he knew he had to help the boy. After authorities responded and Cody was taken away for medical treatment, another neighbor shot and killed the 10-year-old dog. McClelland has contacted an attorney.
