Police shot and killed two dogs that aggressively barked at and then charged two officers late Monday afternoon in midtown Tulsa, authorities said Tuesday.
The incident was the second time Tulsa police officers had been summoned to the area on Monday regarding aggressive dogs roaming the neighborhood, with a man injured in the day’s first incident.
Officers responded about 7:20 a.m. Monday to a report of vicious dogs in the 700 block of South Norwood Avenue.
Police spokesman Leland Ashley said a man had been bitten on one of his calves in the first incident. However, responding officers were unable to locate the two dogs, which were said to be pit bulls.
