Covering the metro, a battle continues in Midwest City over which dogs can be owned by residents. Bull terrier is one of the breeds that are not allowed. But a local family won a ruling to keep their dogs and now, the city is waiting for their appeal to be heard in court.

[…] Katherine Bolles, the City Attorney for Midwest City said, “Those dogs will seek out small children or petite women as their prey. They don’t just bite them and release, they bite to kill.”

Oklahoma Statute indicates that no one can practice specific breed banning. So Midwest City says they should be able to rule over local issues since they’re a Home-Rule Charter City.[…]
