    FAIRBANKS—A Fairbanks man critically shot a pit bull in Aurora Subdivision on Wednesday evening after it attacked another dog being walked by two girls.

The 12- and 16-year-old girls were walking their rat terrier on the 2000 block of Bridgewater Drive when the attack happened. The girls were not injured, but the pit bull's owner was bitten while trying to stop the attack, according to Welborn. Vern Woods, 80, told the Daily News-Miner he was home watching TV...

    Dustin Guess was working outside on a hog fence Thursday morning, he says, when two pit bulls began their attack. But the two adult dogs — one male and one female — weren’t going after the man from West Fork, Arkansas. Instead, they were targeting Guess’ 4-year-old son, Matthew, according to Fox6. The female pit bull sunk its teeth into Matthew’s legs and started to drag him, police say, while the male dog attacked the toddler’s face. Guess told KNWA that he started to sprint toward his son with the hopes of separating him from the two vicious dogs. It’s...

The man reportedly ignored orders from responding police officers, prompting an officer to use a stun gun on him. He was then taken into custody.

    A perceptive and precise narration of what happened yesterday in Syria. We are cautioned not to argue about politics, as that is not our concern as believers. Nothing can change prophecy. And Amir stresses that he is not criticizing anyone, just giving the facts. Our concern should be to bring as many unbelievers to Christ as we can before it is too late.

    The claim: Soon after the Turkish military launched an offensive into the Afrin region of northern Syria, the Turkish presidential spokesman Ibrahim Kalin wrote: "Over the last year alone, more than 700 attacks have been launched from the Afrin area under PYD/YPG [the Kurdish Democratic Union Party and its armed wing, the People's Protection Units] control against Turkish cities." Reality Check verdict: The number of incidents publicly reported in that area and period, checked against multiple sources, appears to be far lower than 700 - Reality Check could find only 26. The Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) told Reality...

Compared to the first six days of early voting in 2014, Democratic turnout increased 69 percent, while Republicans saw a 20 percent increase. The Democrats even surpassed their early voting totals from the 2016 primary...

    The United States is still unsure who directed a February 7 attack on US and US-backed forces in Syria, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said on Saturday, even as he acknowledged accounts that Russian civilian contractors were involved. Reuters has reported that about 300 men working for a Kremlin-linked Russian private military firm were either killed or injured in Syria. The US has estimated about 100 pro-Syrian government forces were killed by US strikes to repel the Febuary 7 attack. Russian military officers told the United States during the incident that Moscow was not involved. The Pentagon has declined to comment...
