The 29-year-old man was treated at Eastern Medical Center in Bangor for bite and puncture wounds on his neck, legs and arms and then released, according to Trooper Adam Coover.

The call for help came in about 4:30 p.m. Saturday, Coover said.

"Two gentlemen said they had locked themselves in the back bedroom," he said. "One had been mauled by the dog and the dog was chewing its way through the door."

Coover said that when he arrived at the mobile home and went inside, "the dog lunged at me and I shot it. It ran into a (second) bedroom and we were able to get the men out of the trailer."

The 3-year-old dog was taken to an emergency veterinary clinic in Brewer, where it was euthanized. It will be tested for rabies, Coover said.

Ex-prosecutor's request for new child porn trial denied

A federal judge has denied a former state prosecutor's request for a new trial on child pornography charges.

Forty-eight-year-old James Cameron was convicted last August of 13 counts of sending, receiving and possessing child pornography. Cameron, who has not been sentenced, has been held without bail since his conviction.

In denying Cameron's appeal, U.S. District Judge John Woodcock said the evidence proved Cameron "was obsessed with young girls and was determined to view pornographic images of them."

According to the Bangor Daily News, defense attorney Michael Cunniff of Portland has said that Cameron's conviction will be appealed to the 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Boston after he is sentenced.
