The first requires that at a court hearing, “the person who designated the dog as a nuisance dog, dangerous dog, or vicious dog has the burden of proving, by clear and convincing evidence, that the dog is a nuisance dog, dangerous dog, or vicious dog.”

That shift in the burden of proof looks like a good thing to me, and I hope it's in the bill when it's signed into law.

I think that's one of the changes that was approved. Also the Govener is supposed to be signing the approved HB14 this tTuesday, 2/21/12 !

That amendment was included, and the Governor signed the bill this morning! Statewide BSL in Ohio will be a thing of the past in 90 days. :nana:

County proposing updates to animal laws
8/23/2012 - West Side Leader

By Kathleen Folkerth

DOWNTOWN AKRON — Summit County plans to change its animal control ordinances to reflect changes at the state level in how potentially dangerous dogs are classified.

During Summit County Council’s Rules Committee meeting Aug. 20, members recommended Council adopt the changes, which came about because of House Bill 14 regarding dangerous dogs.

Jason Dodson, chief of staff for County Executive Russ Pry, said the amended ordinance provides definitions of nuisance dogs, dangerous dogs and vicious dogs, and removed references to dogs by breed.

Also part of the amendment is the addition of the opportunity for owners to contest their dog being classified as nuisance, dangerous or vicious, Dodson said.

If a dog is classified as dangerous or vicious, there are several requirements the owner must meet to continue to keep the dog, such as maintaining liability insurance, keeping the dog in a locked pen or fenced-in area or on a leash and muzzled when in public, and obtaining a special dog tag that identifies the dog as dangerous or vicious at an annual fee of $50.

Also, according to Dodson, the ordinance would be amended to remove several sections that deal with exotic animals, since the state recently passed laws regarding those.
