GROVE, Okla —
The Grove mayor has been cited after police say his girlfriend’s dog bit a boy during a boat show.
The Grand Lake News reports Mayor Marty Follis was cited for “animals: at large or trespass,” and his girlfriend was cited for “animals: rabies vaccination required.”
Grove Police Chief Mark Morris said Follis and his girlfriend took two German shepherd dogs into the March 12 boat show’s civic center, after being informed by a Grand Lake Association member that the dogs weren’t service dogs and couldn’t be in the center.
One of the dogs later nipped a 7-year-old boy and he suffered a gash to his upper lip. He was taken to a hospital.
The dog’s shot records were out of compliance, police said.
Follis said he takes full responsibility for the incident.
