For some reason Whitehall has never understood their law. The current Whitehall code 505.14 STATES "The Ohio Revised Code has placed specific requirements and or regulations regarding the definitions of, and the harboring of "dangerous" and/or "vicious" animals. Harborers of such animals within the Municipality shall do so in ACCORDANCE with the Ohio Revised Code. Further definitions of dangerous and vicious dogs within the City of Whitehall as they pertain actionable offenses, NOT SPECIFIC TO BREED, are as follows . . ."

Prior to HB 14 passing, pit bulls within the city should have only had to follow the restrictions listed in the Ohio Revised Code. However, additional restrictions were placed upon them solely due to breed.

With the passage of HB 14, Pit Bull breeds should NO LONGER be singled out as being automatically vicious because Whitehall law piggybacks on Ohio law. Since Ohio law no longer discriminates against breed, then Whitehall law should not discriminate against breed. But for some reason, they just don't grasp this

Hope you'll be able to continue documenting the fallout from Mandatory Spay Neuter and microchip laws in Los Angeles County,CA. The author of this article appears to be another member of the uninformed media:

"According to a press release issued by the Los Angeles County Department of Animal Care and Control (DACC), officers from DACC will be checking for current rabies vaccinations in the unincorporated areas in the vicinity of: San Gabriel, Monrovia, Pasadena, and Arcadia. The officers will be verifying that residents are in compliance with licensing requirements in addition to the mandatory spay/neuter and microchip ordinance. California State law requires rabies vaccination and licensing for all dogs and cats over the age of four months..."
