PD Responds To Aggressive Animal Call


Ponca City Police probably got a bit of a scare yesterday after a call concerning a dog and a young boy.

During the noon hour, officers were called to a residence in the 300 block of South Peachtree. The report was of a 3 year old boy with a pit bull in the back yard. Observers thought the animal was being ‘very aggressive’ with the youngster, and may have even bitten the boy.

Police got the boy away from the dog and took him into protective custody while the parents were located. The boy was eventually released to his parents.

Animal control was called to the scene, but the report doesn’t indicate if officials removed the animal.
