Oct 21, 1988 - Tuskegee Al - Mayor Johnny Ford said he used karate kicks to fend off TWO PIT BULL DOGS that attacked him while he was jogging Wednesday. The dogs forced him to take refuge in a tree for 2 1/2 hours. A passer-by came to Ford's aid by wounding the dogs with a pistol. The Mayor said he then had beaten the dogs with a tree limb until they were dead. "When the dogs attacked, I battled them with my hands and feet by using karate kicks as best I could," he said.
