On July 17, 2011, an Allegheny County man was walking near his home on South Canal Street in Sharpsburg PA when he was suddenly attacked from behind by a pit bull. According to, the pit bull was running loose in the neighborhood when it bit him on the leg. He was able to fight off the pit bull and ultimately needed 7 stitches to close the dog bite wounds. Since the pit bull was never captured nor identified, the Allegheny County dog bite victim is receiving rabies shots.
