Ohio House Bill 568-”Euthanize All American Pit Bull Terriers” – NO EXCEPTIONS

As I have said in previous posts here, those who fight pit bull terriers, and harbor or train known viscious dogs should be penalized, stiffly (ala Vick), but those who own and have worked and trained their dogs well should not have to bear the brunt of a “government imposed” law that doesn’t apply to them. I am not an activist of any kind, and I do not own a pit bull terrier, but I do take exception when I live in a “free” country that is becoming more and more socialist every time our government decides what is “best for the people.” Where does it end, Pit bulls, Dobermans, German shepherds, any dog that attacks someone, any dog over 25 pounds…?

Please contact your local Ohio rep! I learned of this on a post from “” a great site for dog loving people who know how to properly care for and train a dog!


“Ohio House Bill 568, introduced by Representative Tyrone Yates of Cincinnati, seeks to prohibit the ownership, keeping, or harboring of a dog that “belongs to a breed that is commonly known as a pit bull dog.” Furthermore, if this bill is passed and adopted into law, all such dogs will be seized and euthanized. It is imperative that all concerned dog owners in Ohio contact their elected representatives and express their vehement opposition to this draconian legislation.”
HB 568 unacceptably provides that:
* No person shall own, keep, or harbor a dog that belongs to a breed that is commonly known as a pit bull dog.
* No later than 90 days after the effective date of this bill, a person who owns, keeps, or harbor a pit bull dog will be forced to surrender the dog to a dog warden.
* Within ten days of surrender, the dog warden shall euthanize the dog.
* If an officer has probable cause to believe that a dog is a pit bull, the officer may apply for a search warrant. After obtaining a search warrant, an officer shall seize the dog and transfer the dog to the dog warden, who shall euthanize the dog within 10 days.

All concerned Ohio dog owners should contact their elected representatives and express their strong opposition to HB 568.

Wholesale killing of pets that are NOT a threat, is, or rather, should be unacceptable to us as a society. The government cannot stop viscious dog attacks by killing all of the pit bulls in the state. Do you think that the dogs know that it is against the law to attack someone? Viscious dogs should be put down for human safety, I agree on that point, but in my opinion the owner of the “viscious” attacking dog is the one to be penalized. A viscious dog is a viscious dog no matter what the breed. When I was growing up it was the doberman. Now it’s the pit bull. What’s next? Picture this – 2 neighbors have a pit bull and a doberman, a kid is throwing rocks at the doberman through the fence as the pit bull watches on. The provoked doberman jumps the fence and takes a chunk out of the kids leg. The police come and give the owner of the doberman a warning and possibly a citation … and oh yeah, by the way, take the pit bull from next door, a docile family pet, away to be killed. Knock on a few doors to ask some questions and find one or two more pit bulls, take them away also to be killed… for no real reason…Hmmm, sound about right? If they pass this bill, it will be.
