Council passes strong vicious dog ordinance (Glenpool, OK)

GLENPOOL-Glenpool City Council passed city ordinance 605 amending city code chapter six providing for the definition of a vicious dog, harboring a vicious dog and the penalties at the Sept. 15, 2008 meeting.



City Attorney Phil Fisher said " This ordinance defines and establishes a vicious dog for record and to establish an ordinance for the city. This does not include a watch dog in someone's home. If a person breaks in to another person's home and is bitten by the property owners dog, this is not considered a vicious dog.

Ed Tinker said "We are not a charter city. If we were, we could pass much stronger codes in fact Drumright being a charter city passed strong rules including fences buried so many inches, more insurance and more. We nearly eradicated pit bulls and Rottwielers from Drumright. This is the strongest code we could pass and I think it will help."

The new ordinance provides for "proper enclosure of a vicious dog" confined to a securely enclosed and locked pen or structure with top and sides and at least 150 square feet of space for each dog over six months old.

Harboring a vicious dog brings a fine of $250 plus court costs, $250 for destruction of dog plus court costs and impoundment fees. The impoundment and veterinarian fees will be charges to the owner in all instances. (This is only a partial list of provisions and definitions, for a complete copy of the ordinance contact the city of Glenpool.)

The ordinance is in response to a vicious attack by a pit bull on a Glenpool woman and her tow small dogs in July. The woman was bitten, one of her dogs killed. A resident came to her aid and was also bitten by the same dog.
