Betty Ross of Boise, Idaho, was dozing in a living room chair when her dog awakened her at about 2 a.m. She saw an intruder enter the house through a back door and start toward a bedroom. Ross slipped into the room through a side door and picked up a rifle.
Switching on the lights, she met the man face-to-face and ordered him out. The man fled, but a suspect was arrested minutes later. (The Idaho Statesman, Boise, Idaho)
