Pit Bulls in Ohio

I’m almost speechless…the Ohio legislature is attempting to pass Bill 568, a law that will effectively not only ban, but mass-euthanize, pit bulls.

You can read the article and the full scope of the proposed law here.  You can write to the Governor of Ohio here.

Please, spread the word, email, contact everyone you know, this is something that needs to get nipped.  It’s bad enough that insurance rates are so skewed against dog lovers who decide they want a pit, who I personally think are the most fucking beautiful dogs ever (with eyes like theirs how can you disagree?) but outright bans and the fates that are akin to mass slaughters?  That’s just inhuman.

    I wonder if you know that in the late 90’s, Germany proposed to have all Rottweilers slaughtered because they kill even their masters. I just don’t know if this was implemented.

    Thanks for the post-wrote a letter to the Gov. I’ve got a pit-biggest lover boy ever. He’s also quite the entertainer. Everyday when my wife walks him, someone says:”He’s so beautiful” and he seems to know it! He’s got those beautiful eyes too. Hopefully the good people of Ohio will make the right decision.
