Is This The U.S.?"State Representative Tyrone Yates has proposed a bill today that would prohibit the ownership of pit bulls in the state of Ohio"

"Unbelievable! They're proposing search warrants/seizing dogs that resemble pits and killing them, WITHOUT ANY HISTORY OR PROOF OF AGGRESSION, WITHOUT ANY EVALUATION! How many other breeds will they kill "by mistake" if this law passes? This isn't just pitties that are in danger! Get the word out to everyone you know in OH and get them to contact their legislators NOW before it's too late! LET'S MAKE SOME NOISE PEOPLE! Punish the deed, not the breed!
"Ohio State Representative Tyrone Yates has proposed a bill today that would prohibit the ownership of pit bulls in the state of Ohio. The bill requires all owners to surrender their "pit bulls" within 90 days of the effective date of the proposed law. The bill is unequivocal that the dog warden "shall" euthanize all pit bulls within 10 days of their surrender.

Also under this proposal a dog warden or other officer that has probable cause to believe that a dog is a pit bull dog, may apply for a search warrant. With the search warrant the officer will have the authority to seize the pit bull dog and surrender it to the dog warden to be killed."

BSL is Bullshit!!!

Tyrone Yates has nothing better to do, then to put more walls up around the State of Ohio. He ought to be worrying about the criminals, drugs that are children can get on the streets any where at any time, and how about the children of our future that are being killed by guns. Banning and Killing APBT's seem to be his top proprity these days.

APBT's dont become vicious on their own, Punish the person that owns the dog, Don't punish the breed for something that it was taught to do.

Just on the news a couple weeks ago, last year 2007, only 138 APBT's were properly registered in the City Of Cleveland, Over 2000 were APBT's were seized and killed, and they were NOT registered. HELLO!!!!

Ohio already has a law in effect, maybe if those people would get off there lazy ass's and start enforcing the laws, Tyrone Yates wouldnt be trying to Pass OH HB-568

OHIO NEEDS YOUR HELP, STOP OH HB 568-BANNING/SEIZING AND KILLING PIT BULLS
