Dayton residents speak out after the dog mauling death of Klonda Richey

After the recent dog mauling death of Klonda Richey the Dayton City Commission hears the complaints of Dayton residents regarding neighborhood safety, and lax enforcement of  laws regarding dogs.

Dayton lawmakers are in discussion with state lawmakers on ways to fix the mess that HB 14 has created in Ohio. HB 14 was sold to the Ohio Legislature as "finally giving dog wardens the tools to deal with dangerous dogs." Predictably, in practice the law is a failure.  One must hope that the out of state animal rights and breed specific advocacy organization that wrote HB 14 is not part of the process of re-writing Ohio law.
