On July 3, 2011, an 80 year-old Pottsville PA man became the 4th pit bull attack victim in that city in the last two weeks. As described in the Republican & Herald, the Pottsville pit bull attack victim was standing near a street corner waiting for a ride to church when he was bitten on the leg. A tourniquet was used to stop the bleeding and he was taken to Schuylkill Medical Center. The Pottsville resident’s leg has 4 puncture holes from the dog bites, as well as a black & blue leg.
