OH: Toledo - City Council Votes on BSL

This alert from AKC below clearly demonstrates what we can do if we never
give up, never give in and never compromise with anti-pet legislation
designed to end our historic relationship with animals. The vote is today,
not tomorrow now! It was HSUS that first used "pit bulls" for fundraising
and spread much false information. We still have the 20-year-old HSUS
packet. If you haven't joined RPOA, please do so today. We need you! Our

legislators are?

Subject: AKC Legislative Alert: Toledo, OH to Consider Repeal of
Breed-Specific Law TOMORROW (10/12)!
To: "doglaw" <[email protected]>
Date: Monday, October 11, 2010, 3:37 PM

Please share this information with club members and other dog lovers in the
Toledo area:

AKC has just learned that thanks to all your hard work and education over
the past months, the Toledo City Council will meet on Tuesday, October 12th
to consider amending the portion of their Municipal Code that bans "pit
bulls" in the city. The new ordinance would address the deeds of dogs and
their owners, instead of punishing specific breeds. Responsible dog owners
and breeders are encouraged to attend and to call or send emails to the
council members thanking them for considering this measure and asking them
to support it.

The meeting information is as follows:

Toledo City Council Meeting
Tuesday, October 12th, 2010
4:00 P.M.
One Government Center , Suite 2120
Toledo , Ohio 43604

A full copy of the proposed changes can be found here.
http://www.ci.toledo.oh.us/LinkClick...d=473&mid=1184

Toledo ordinance 389-10 will repeal Municipal Code 505.14, which prohibited
the ownership of "pit bulls or pit bull mixed breed dogs". Due to repeated
questions about the adequacy and efficacy of this ban by Toledo citizens and
concerned dog owners, the Lucas County Dog Warden Citizens Advisory
Committee had recommended the removal of 505.14.

The AKC believes that dog owners should be responsible for their dogs. We
support laws that: establish a fair process by which specific dogs are
identified as "dangerous" based on stated, measurable actions; impose
appropriate penalties on irresponsible owners; and establish a well-defined
method for dealing with dogs proven to be dangerous. The AKC strongly
opposes any legislation
that determines a dog to be "dangerous" based on specific breeds or
phenotypic classes of dogs.

Dog law heading to council
Proposal aims to promote ownership responsibility
By JOE VARDON
BLADE STAFF WRITER


After months of research, crafting, and debate, a proposed Toledo law governing dogs and their owners will come before City Council Tuesday.

Councilmen will vote on repealing the city's old "vicious dogs" law that targeted "pit bulls" and "pit bull" mixes - ruled unconstitutional by Toledo Municipal Court Judge Michael Goulding in January - and replacing it with a law intended to promote responsibility among dog owners and change the scope of dogs considered to be dangerous.

The new law was written based on recommendations compiled by the Lucas County Dog Warden Advisory Committee at the request of Toledo Mayor Mike Bell in February.

The advisory committee's recommendations were presented to City Council in August, and those same recommendations largely will be what council considers tomorrow with a few exceptions.

Councilman Rob Ludeman will introduce an amendment raising the limit of time a dog can be tethered outside from 15 minutes to one hour. Mr. Ludeman said a dog can be tethered even longer if the pet's owner can see it and it's not a danger or nuisance to neighbors, but it may not be tied up outside at all if its owner is not home.

"This will make the law more friendly for responsible dog owners and further gives us the ability to address irresponsible dog owners," said Mr. Ludeman, who is also a part of the dog warden advisory committee.

Julie Lyle, the Lucas County dog warden who in the past has expressed concerns about the pending dog legislation, said Mr. Ludeman's amendment will make the law "less enforceable but easier for owners to meet its requirements."

"I likely wasn't going to send my deputies out to watch for dogs tethered up for 15 minutes, and I'm certainly not going to do that for an hour," Ms. Lyle said.

Ms. Lyle said the county dog warden's contract with the city has not been changed for her to enforce the new law and would have to be altered if council does indeed pass the proposed ordinance tomorrow.

The city's old legislation placed added restrictions on "pit bulls," including limiting ownership to one "pit bull" and requiring that "pit bulls" be leashed and muzzled when off owners' property. The new proposal would apply a set of restrictions to misbehaving dogs of any breed, not just "pit bulls."

Highlights of the new ordinance coming before council include:

•An escalating scale of fines for unprovoked dog bites. Penalties would rise from $150 to $500 to $1,000 and could include mandatory pet ownership classes or community service with an animal welfare organization.

•New "level one" and "level two" threat classifications for nuisance and dangerous dogs.

•Restrictions against leaving a dog unattended for more than 24 hours.

•Mandatory spay or neuter surgery at the owner's expense for dogs caught running at large more than once.

•The ability to seize the dogs of owners deemed reckless.

"There are a lot of great ideas in there, but there are a lot of limitations too," Ms. Lyle said.

City Council is also considering the repeal of penalties for killing or injuring animals based on their monetary value and replacing them with a uniform, first-degree misdemeanor charge for the killing or injuring of any domestic or farm animal.
