Lawmaker considers statewide pit bull ban

Updated:
A proposal to ban pit bull dogs. Are pit bulls too dangerous to have as household pets?

Earlier this month, the News on 6 told you about a 3-year-old child in Moore who lost his arm after an attack by a pit bull. One state lawmaker says he'll submit a bill in the next legislative session to ban the pit bull breed in Oklahoma.

Midwest City banned the dogs back in 1987, and hasn't a one pit bull attack reported since.

The new bill will amend existing state law which outlines regulations for any "potentially dangerous dog," that does damage to any person, animal, or property when unprovoked.
