Pit Bull Advocates Carpet-Bomb Whitehall City Council
ALERT: Pit Spamming | Whitehall, OH - As cities across Ohio try to ban pit bulls, the dogs' defenders are coming out with their muzzles off. They're passionate, and they're packing public hearings to oppose bans. More people have sounded off about this issue than on any other that Whitehall's leaders have discussed in years.
This is a call to arms folks. DogsBite.org asks all readers to send us weblinks when they see an incident of carpet-bombing occurring.
Citizens have complained of being terrorized by pit bulls roaming their neighborhoods. Pit bulls accounted for one-third of the dog bites reported in Franklin County last year, in which Whitehall is located, although they represent only 1 percent of licensed dogs in the county.
"I'll tell you, we've been carpet-bombed by e-mails across the country," City Councilman Chris Rodriguez said. He said he's more interested in what Whitehall residents have to say.
As this councilmember should be. DogsBite.org is actively tracking instances of carpet-bombing. Please send us weblinks when you see one. Many smaller and mid-sized towns do not know that this activity occurs nationwide. With your help, we can send them proof that it does.
