WILKINSBURG, Pa. -- A young Wilkinsburg boy has more than 200 stitches and staples on his body after a dog attacked him.
Rocco Doman, 8, is out of the hospital and resting at home.
While visiting a neighborhood friend at a home on Elm Street Saturday, he was mauled by a 140-pound pit bull that somehow escaped a fenced yard next door.
"He did his best to fight him off but a little boy against a big dog, that's a Rocky Balboa story," said his father Tim Doman. "I say he's pretty lucky. Thank God he didn't grab his neck or something like that."
Really, a 140 lb. pit bull? Jaysus, that like saying "50 pound Chihuahua", it just doesn't even make sense.
