Ohio: Man complains after Animal Control finds he ignored his town's BSL requirements for his pit bull

OHIO -- "got out of the er today it took six hours and i was pretty much the only person there leave it up to kenton er to not do there jobs i fracture my knee thay could not even put the splint on right kentons finest fore ya thay think thay are a 5 star more like 1star i got to use crutchs so its hard to get around and on top of that i got to finde a home fore my pit bull because the city of kenton has the only law in ohio ware you have to put a mussel on a pit the pussy ass dog catcher gave me a vicious dog charge its not over pussy my dog is a big ass baby so fuck kenton and fuck the dum ass people who live in kenton"

Updated post:
"I lost something that I loved and took care of fore 4 years thanks to my so called family even thoe thay know I could have went to prison the last time thay took my dog and you go and do this shit thanks fore giving me more problems. Don't ever talk to me agin"

So basically he knew Kenton Ohio enforced BSL (breed specific legislation) on his dog. What did he do about it? Nothing. Then when he gets caught, he complains about how everyone else is to blame

Unrelated other posts, but I found this guy's complaining to be amusing. 


(a)   For the purpose of this section, the following definitions shall apply unless the context clearly indicates or requires a different meaning.
   (4)   “Vicious dog.”
         A.   A dog that, without provocation and subject to division B. of this definition, meets any of the following criteria:
            1.   Has killed or caused serious injury to any person;
            2.   Has caused injury, other than killing or serious injury, to any person, or has killed another dog;
            3.   Belongs to a breed that is commonly known as a pit bull dog.  The ownership, keeping, or harboring of such a breed of dog shall be prima facie evidence of the ownership, keeping or harboring of a vicious dog.

(b)   No owner, keeper, harborer, or handler of a dangerous or vicious dog shall fail to do either of the following:
      (1)   While the dog is on the premises of the owner, keeper, harborer, or handler, securely confine it at all times in a locked pen that has a top, locked fenced yard, or other locked enclosure that has a top; except that a dangerous dog may, in the alternative, be tied with a leash or tether so that the dog is adequately restrained. If a dangerous dog is restrained by a leash or tether, the leash or tether must be constructed out of materials that:
         A.   Will withstand the resistance of such dangerous dog without breaking;
         B.   Cannot be chewed apart or through by such dangerous dog; and
         C.   Is situated such that there are no structure or implement within the radius of such leash or tether that would sever such leash or tether after continued use.
      (2)   While the dog is off the premises of the owner, keeper, harborer, or handler, do at least one of the following:
         A.   Keep the dog in a locked pen that has a top, locked fenced yard, or other locked enclosure that has a top; or
         B.   Keep that dog on a chain-link leash or tether that is not more than six feet in length and:
            1.   Have the leash or tether controlled by a person who is of suitable age, size, and discretion; or
            2.   Securely attach, tie, or affix the leash or tether to the ground or a stationary object or fixture so that the dog is adequately restrained and station a person in close enough proximity to that dog so as to prevent it from causing injury to any person. Any vicious dog maintained under this subsection 618.16(b)(2)B. shall also be muzzled at all times with a muzzle that is designed and worn in a manner to prevent such dog from causing physical harm to any person or other animal.

(c)   No owner, keeper, or harborer of a vicious dog shall fail to obtain liability insurance with an insurer authorized to write liability insurance in this state providing coverage in each occurrence, subject to a limit, exclusive of interest and costs, of not less than one hundred thousand dollars ($100,000.00) because of damage or bodily injury to or death of a person caused by the vicious dog.

(g)   (1)   If a violation of division (b) of this section involves a dangerous dog, whoever violates that division (b) is guilty of a misdemeanor of the fourth degree on a first offense and of a misdemeanor of the third degree on each subsequent offense.  Additionally, the court may order the offender to personally supervise the dangerous dog that the offender owns, keeps, or harbors, to cause that dog to complete dog obedience training, or to do both, and the court may order the offender to obtain liability insurance pursuant to division (c) of this section.  The court, in the alternative, may order the dangerous dog to be humanely destroyed by a licensed veterinarian, the county dog warden, or the county humane society.
