Cincinnati, OH - A neighborhood group complains pit bulls are a growing problem, even though pit bulls are banned in the city. The SPCA removed five of the dogs from a home in North Fairmount recently. The dogs were thin and showed visible scars, but investigators found no evidence of dogfighting,
Neighbor Jim McNulty says he's seeing far too many pit bulls on the West Side. Only the SPCA can identify and remove them.McNulty is asking city council to give police more teeth to act when they see a pit bull. The way it stands right now, he says, "nothing is being done." The dogs he says are not only illegal, they are a danger to kids and folks who work in the area.
There appears to be a breakdown in enforcement issues. If Jim McNulty or a resident of this area ever finds this blog post, please contact DogsBite.org and explain the situation.
