Ohio works on bill to dog bites, not ban breeds

Posted on June 9th, 2011 No Comments

A bill in the Ohio House is working to stop biting dogs rather than ban a breed of dog by labeling it vicious.

The bill is now being rewritten in a House committee because it started as a bill to remove “pit bull” as a a dog that is inherently violent which is currently in the state law. The new bill has three categories to describe a dog’s behavior, vicious, dangerous and nuisance.

This new classification system is supposed to make it easier for owner’s to be punished for their dog’s behavior. If the dog is classified as a dangerous dog, an owner will have to register it and it will have to wear a special tag and liability insurance must be purchased for the dog. In 1987, a vicious dog was labeled a dog that has killed or seriously injured someone without provocation. It used to say that all breeds “pit bull” were included.

If you or a loved one  has been injured after a dog attack, contact the Michigan dog bite injury lawyers of Ravid & Associates, P.C.,by calling 877-PET-BITE.
