Edmonton – A pit bull is being called a hero after authorities said the dog saved a woman from being attacked by a machete. That’s according to a report from WGHP via CTV News.

CTVNews reported that three men and a teenager broke into the woman’s home in Edmonton, Canada last week and tried attacking her. Police said once things got violent, Mercey, a 4-year-old pit bull, jumped into action and took the majority of the beating. Officials said the dog’s owner sustained only minor injuries.
