Attorney: Toledo's pit bull law is ineffective

TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) - The Lucas County Dog Warden Advisory Committee and Toledo City Council Public Safety Committee met Wednesday to discuss changing Toledo's vicious dog ordinance.

The meeting focused on a presentation by Ledy Vankavge, the senior legislative attorney for Best Friends Animal Society from IL.

Vankavge argued Toledo's breed specific law, which limits pit bull ownership to one adult dog per household and mandates they be leashed and muzzled when in public, should be replaced.

"The problem is it doesn't protect public safety," said Vankavge. It's never shown to work anywhere to reduce bites."

Vankavge told the committee a new law that targets reckless dog owners and promotes spaying and neutering would be more effective.

The chairman of the Dog Warden Advisory Committee says legislation to replace the current law should be presented to the mayor's office in 60 days for review. He hopes a new law will be approved this summer.
