Ohio is already one of the least Pit Bull-friendly states, with a state-wide ordinance that declairs a dog vicious if it "[b]elongs to the breed that is commonly known as a pit bull dog."

Well, seems now Ohio State Rep Tyrone Yates is hoping Ohio will win the title of 'Least American State in America' by introducing the outlandish, Draconion Bill 568. This law would outlaw Pit Bulls in the state and would not include a grandfather clause for existing Pit Bulls. Residents would be forced to give up their companions and family members for euthanasia. Search warrants will be issued if law enforcement believes a person may be harboring a Pit Bull.

This is the stuff nightmares are made of, and everyone in Ohio - Pit Bull owner or no - should be scared to death of this bill. All concerned Ohio residents should head on over to the Canine Advocates of Ohio website for more information and what you need to do to get ready to do battle.

We'll be watching with baited breath.
