James Harrison's Child Taken To Hospital After Dog Bite

81 posts in this topic

PITTSBURGH -- Steelers linebacker James Harrison's young son is being treated at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh after being bitten by an animal -- apparently Harrison's pet dog, WTAE Channel 4 Action News has learned.

A source told reporter Ari Hait that the injuries to James Harrison III are severe, but not life-threatening.

How anyone can put their child in harms way having apparently a pit bull in the house is effing stupidity. Let's hope the child will be OK.

Are you saying that children and pit bulls shouldn't reside in the same house? If you are, that's asinine; fortunately, I don't think that's what you're implying.

Pit Bulls get a bad rap because of stuff like this. If not raised right they do sh*t like this, it's more the owner's fault than the dog's.

pit bulls are docile as any other dog if they're not raised to fight.

I have completely mixed feelings on the subject. I always felt that pit bulls were fine, like most of you are saying, as long as they are raised right and not trained to fight. One of my best friends had the sweetest pit bull, very smart, and was never aggressive towards humans or other animals. Then my friend had a son. Her dog loved playing with Connor, her son, and was always fine. Then one day, my friend gets up to get a glass of water when Connor was 8 months. She comes back in the room and her pit had Connor's head and face in it's mouth. Granted, it's easy to say that she shouldn't have left the two alone, and that's probably right. But I have my doubts that any of her other dogs (non-pit) would have done the same thing. Maybe the pit was just playing and didn't intend to harm, but it did (stitches on Connor's head and cheek). I guess my conclusion is, pits are fine, you just need to take a little extra care and supervision with them when around children.

Regardless of how my wiener dog is raised she isn't going to be capable of ripping my daughters throat out.

If this proves to be his dog then he should have to answer to putting his child in that situation.

Did they take his child to the hospital by plane?

I've had little dogs bite the crap out of me but never had a big dog do it. With that given IMO the breed dose matter. Pits are fine as a pet but they also are very strong dogs and dont understand there own power.

    • So you choose to look at people based on race instead of them as an individual person. When you put it that way, you'll never be satisfied. Grouping people into race categories that have nothing to do with a person's character, personality, or any of the sort will always show a variation in data across all groups under that category. It's virtually impossible to make race groups all the same due to the fact it has nothing to do with any one of those people's characteristics, which are random and probability showing it's impossible for everything to be equal.  
    • Is it Cam simply refusing to go underneath or is it a number of contributing factors? We are a running/downfield passing team. The problem was, we couldn't get the run game going due to the OL, and our play calling/design didn't help matters at times to compensate for that deficiency either. Nobody complained about this in 2015 when we nearly went undefeated. So what was the difference between seasons? It couldn't have had anything to do with our depleted OL could it? Overall we shot ourselves in the foot too many times in 2016 in various ways. But the reality is the OL was at the center of our woes.
    • What you’re saying doesn’t make sense.  The society we have now, was structured based completely on race.  That number I mentioned concerning the black prison population, there is no way in the universe you can get that number without being directly targeted.  Even during South Africa Apartheid, their prison numbers in the black population wasn’t as bad, nowhere near close.  This is our country. The only way to truly make things right, is to acknowledge the problem and addressed it specifically.  The reason why we see protests like the one Kaepernick did, is because that problem hasn’t been addressed.  Of course I have my answer on how to address it, but I’m sure most would completely disagree with it, even though the statistics would show it is much deserved.
