(FOX19) -An Air Force pilot just back from an overseas mission found himself in the middle of bloody struggle between attacking PIT BULLS and the dogs' owner Monday morning.

The incident started along Interstate 75 at the Cut in the Hill in an ordeal that ended on Buttermilk Pike in Crescent Springs.

Nathaniel Kirstein says he was driving by with his family when he saw a woman being attacked by two pit bulls which happened to be hers.
“We saw a woman being attacked. Somebody needed to help,” Kirstein said.

Kirstein says by the time he got to the dogs' owner, Amy Bronner, all three of her dogs were involved in a chaotic struggle. 
“I noticed two large pit bulls dragging her across the ground. They appeared to be biting her,” Kirstein said. “When I first got to the woman I pulled the dogs off of her and that's about where my plan ended. I started getting attacked a little bit,”
Kirstein was bitten at least five times during the attack. 
According to a police report, two larger dogs went on fighting each other and before a Covington police officer arrived who tried to subdue the dogs with mace and then a taser. 
“He tried tasing one of the dogs with a stun gun. That got them to separate for maybe a second or two then they went back to fighting then he tried tasing one of the other dogs,” Kirstein said. 
The dogs began attacking the officer who slipped on the gravel and fell before Kirstein went to the officer's aide. 
“I ran over and I hit the dog and I grabbed and pulled the dog off him. That's when he immediately turned on me and started biting my right arm,” Kirstein said

According to Kirstein, that gave the officer time to draw his weapon before firing a total of four shots which killed the attacking dog.

The officer suffered a bite wound to the hand before putting one of the pit bulls down.

Bronner left the scene with the other two dogs. She was charged with harboring a vicious animal and the lack of rabies vaccinations.

Honestly, after all the pit experiences I've had, and all the low life, lying pit owners I've had to deal with, I'd have just kept on driving. A pit attacking its owner is so much better than the pit attacking a child or some random stranger. That sounds harsh, but if you are going to intervene you will probably be bit, possibly mauled. I refuse to be a good Samaritan for someone so stupid and narcissistic that they would not only own multiple pits, but walk them in a public place, putting others at risk. Of course, it's not always easy to tell if it's the owner that's being attacked. Still, I would hesitate. Trying to save someone puts yourself at great risk.
