83 year old man was fatally mauled by two dogs in Alabama on Sunday.


On Sunday 83-year-old Mr. Willard Norton, who would have turned 84 in July, was viciously attacked by two pit bulldogs that belonged to his neighbors around 3:30 on County Road 264 in Town Creek.

Mr. Norton who was retired from Reynolds Metals in Muscle Shoals sadly succumbed to his injuries a short time after the attack.

The dogs were reportedly taken in by animal control, and since the passage of Emily’s Law the punishment is much more severe for owners of dogs that kill people.

Please keep his wife of 62 years, Ms. Dorothy Norton, in your prayers.
