Injured pit bull owner discharged
SHAMOKIN - James L. "Waldo" Walsh, 55, of 138 S. Franklin St., Shamokin, who suffered serious injuries when attacked by his pit bull April 16 at his home, was discharged Wednesday from Geisinger Medical Center in Danville.
Walsh was initially admitted to the hospital in serious condition before being upgraded to fair. He suffered severe injuries to both hands and arms as well as bites on his upper body. Police and local emergency services agencies responded to Walsh's home because of the attack.
The pit bull was removed from the home April 17 by a state dog warden and reportedly was euthanized.
Walsh also was hospitalized March 23 after being bit in the left arm by the dog.
