Woman bites dog to save pet

A woman in the United States has saved her pet dog from a pit-bull by biting back.

Amy Rice says she feared for her pet's life after the vicious terrier jumped over the fence of her yard and set-upon her Labrador retriever.

That's when she took the matters into her own hands, or should we say mouth, and bit it right on the nose!

Her pet was saved, and the pit-bull is now in quarantine.

Ms Rice has been told she may need rabies shots as the bite drew blood.
