Pet liability insurance increased to $1 million

LAWTON, Okla._Liability insurance required by Lawton residents who own a dangerous or potentially dangerous dogs, has been increased to $1 million.

City Councilman for ward 5, Dwight Tanner said the adjustment comes in light of a vicious dog attack last month that killed 3 year-old- Jordan Collins.

Collins was attacked by a pit bull while in the backyard of a south Lawton home while in the care of a babysitter. 

Tanner said the ordinance formally required animal owners to obtain a $50,000 policy, and the city's definition of a dangerous or potentially dangerous dog is not breed specific; the ordinance encompasses all dangerous pets, and is not limited to K-9’s.
