A May 23, 2012 report from KDKA TV highlighted yet another example of an irresponsible pit bull owner.  A 4 year-old girl walked a few doors down from her home to visit a friend when a tethered pit bull attacked her. The pit bull was chained to a fence while its owner sat nearby.  The pit bull’s owner fled the scene of the attack with his dog before police could arrive.
