An Oklahoma Natural Gas employee is recovering at a hospital after being attacked by a dog. Tulsa Police say the worker went into the backyard of a Tulsa home near 33rd and South 125th East Avenue to read a meter, when a bull mastiff attacked him, breaking his right arm.
"It's a difficult situation for everybody, especially the pet. Everybody can have a pet; however, if there's any idea that it may injure somebody else, even if itâ€™s in the backyard, perhaps you can restrain the pet to some extent looking at their safety as well others. It's a fine line,â€ said Tulsa Police Officer Ted Umbarger.
Police say the dog had all its shots and the owner was cooperative. Nonetheless, the dog was taken by animal control for a routine 10-day observation.
