St. Paul Park Police Chief Mike Monahan’s effort to fetch a woman from a burning house left him with dog bite wounds and the nickname “Milkbone.”

Monahan is recovering after being attacked by a pit bull terrier while responding to a fire call last week. The dog bloodied his hand but didn’t sully his sense of humor.
