Steelers star’s pit bull attacks his son
Channel 11 News in Pittsburgh is reporting that a pit bull owned by Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison attacked the player’s young son on Thursday.
An unidentified neighbor said one of the star player’s three dogs got loose Thursday at Harrison’s Franklin Park home and attacked the boy, James III. His age was not immediately available.
The boy was taken to UPMC Children’s Hospital, where his condition is not known. The hospital declined comment.
“We are aware of the situation, but it a personal matter for James,” the Steelers said in a statement.
Harrison, 31, is the NFL Defensive Player of the Year — and the team member that opted to stay home on the day the Super Bowl-winning Steelers met with President Barack Obama.
