    All I have to say is the larger the breed of dog the better the judge of character...if you have been attacked unprovoked more than once in your lifetime...it just might be you

    it's a dog bite story. they happen every day. every media outlet can't report every silly story. this is just one witn got a hold of. nbsj has their own stories they work on. get over it.

    This story has yet to even be reported in the amazing New Bern Sun Journal. It really is a shame that New Bern has to get local news from a Greenville TV station.

    My son was recently bitten in the face by a dog. The bite was not 'severe', but still needed 30 stitches and the total bills to date are around $10K. The dog? A black lab. All Dogs, regardless of breed have the potential to bite. I have been attacked by labs mostly, a malmute, a chow, a beagle - that little thing was actually the meanest. Never a Pitt. Never a shepard, Never a 'fighting' dog. Just dogs coming after my dogs and I got caught up in it. As long as the owner makes it right by paying the man's medical bills, and the bite is reported, all's good. I'd keep in mind though that a 2nd bite could result in serious financial problems for the owner. First bite is 'free' in this state, meaning the owner cannot be sued blind. If my dogs were to bite, I am afraid they'd be put down and I adore these furry guys. They are not worth my home and my family's financial security.

    Instead of argueing over what kind of dog it is you should be listening to the real story that the owner has posted! And all you pit bull haters out there are full of it. I used to be the same way you are but i have one of my own now and he is the most loyalist dog I have ever had, protective when he needs to be but the most loving dog ever to my children. A dog bit is serious but no matter what type of dog it is you gotta look at the whole story!!!!!!!

    Accused dog owner here again. I just reviewed the story once more and noticed some inaccuracies you should be aware of. First, the incident DID NOT take place at the accusers home. It happened 1/4mile up the road at MY PROPERTY where there are many clearly posted signs that say NO TRESPASSING and WARNING: SECURITY DOG! Also, the man was NOT bitten several times. The police at the scene stated that there was a small scratch that may have needed some hydrogen peroxide. As I said before, you are invited to meet my pets and form your own opinions. I would like to thank WITN for allowing me to post my side of the story.

    Hello everyone. I am the owner of the dog that is accused of "attacking" a man on Antioch Rd. Sunday afternoon. Take notice that there are NO FACTUAL DETAILS printed in this story. You don't even know what kind of dog it is. To those who believe my dog should be put down...I encourage you to stop by and meet my dog! Then decide if you think he is even capable of doing harm to anyone, UNPROVOKED that is. Perhaps like most things we hear in the news today, this is just another over exaggeration from a lonely person starved for attention.
