On March 16, 2012, a roaming pit bull attacked a 6 year old boy in Crafton Heights PA.  As described on wpxi.com, the boy was playing in a community park when the unrestrained pit bull bit him.  The pit bull also attacked a security guard and a police officer who had come to his aid.  The cop had to shoot and kill the dog to prevent any further attacks.  All 3 PA dog bite victims were taken to Pittsburgh area hospitals for medical treatment.
