The City of Tulsa and the Tulsa Police Department recognize Mike Harrell for his quick action saving two women from a dog attack.

“I’m very, very thankful for being in the right place at the right time,” Harrell said, “and being able to have the right equipment.”

Harrell shot and killed the dog as it was in the process of two church volunteers last month.

Mayor Bartlett says Harrell’s quick action in saving the two women shows both Harrell’s heroism and the importance of Second Amendment rights.

The TPD and the City of Tulsa recognized Harrell Monday in a ceremony at City Hall.
